as part of non-mathematical subjects, such as Economics or Engineering. These will
require statistical results to be a part of a wider study.
This assessed Report is designed to give students experience with presenting
Statistics within a context and in a format likely to be required at the University of
Auckland.

Present the Report in standard sections with headings:

General Comment About Use of language
Whether you like it or not, your academic standing at an English-speaking university
will depend on the level of academic English that you use when writing and
speaking.
Things to consider.
• Orderly presentation of ideas
• Smoothness of expression
• Economy of expression
→ Avoid unnecessary jargon
→ Wordiness – if you can put something simply, then do.
→ No colloquial expressions. Know the difference between academic
English and “street talk”.
Grammar and spelling. These are important. Use computer checking systems.
Refer to the Academic Word List below. It was established for a reason.

The final submission is required in two formats.
1. Electronic. There are two reasons for an electronic version (Word).
(a)Authenticity: Submit your Report through “Turn-it-in” and record the
result.
(b) Excel will be used to check your calculation of values.
2. Paper copy. This is your final product for marking and you want it to be at a
high standard. The final printed version is your opportunity to impress.
Off-shore students may submit this copy as a single pdf for printing and
marking. Other formats, such as Word, present too many opportunities for
incorrect formatting for you to rely on your electronic version being printed as
it appears to the Examiner.
This is your opportunity to convince the Examiner that you are a serious student.
Make the most of it.
