Using WRiSE

You can use WRiSE to learn about report writing on your own or as part of a class exercise.

1. You can use the WRiSE site before your assignment to learn about the best structure and language to use for report writing.

2. You can use a specific discipline module while you are writing sections of your report assignment to check that you are on the right track.

3. You can be directed to use the WRiSE site by your lecturers to prepare for a particular report assignment or to give feedback on another student´s draft report.

After you´ve had a quick look around the WRiSE site, it´s a good idea to decide what you want to get out of your session with the WRiSE site. For example, you might decide to:

  • look at only one part, either the ´writing´ or ´content´ section
  • look at only one of the report sections, e.g. how to structure an introduction
  • look at the overall structure section to see how the whole report is structured
  • test your knowledge by going straight to the exercises in each section
  • focus on the things which you need to improve most.

Whatever your purpose may be, you will need to set aside some time to get the most out of your session with WRISE. However, it´s probably not a good idea to try to cover everything in one module in one session; instead, work through a section or part of a section, knowing that you can always come back and check your understanding at a later time. Try to remember the key points on report structure and language in the section you have visited or the key concepts in the content module.

You can always review the sections in a discipline module while you are writing your report and check whether you are applying what you have learned to your own writing.
