9 Extended Response Writing Style
An Extended Response has similarities to an essay. It has an Introduction, Body, & Conclusion however the writing style may be slightly less formal and more concise. It is more like a Business Report...however if in doubt an essay format is fine. Business reports are written to be: Concise and clear Easy and quick to interpret Useful for accurately assessing situations and making decisions. I.E. Relevant, ‘to the point’ and justified information!

10 Short preview or overview statements
Components of business reports (pt1) Short preview or overview statements Shorter than "traditional essay paragraphs" that "get right to the point“ Lists of main points, as in the previous sample reports, followed by expanded descriptions where appropriate Headings to draw attention to major points or new sections

Components of business reports (pt2) Selective underlining or highlighting where emphasis is required Inclusions where possible of graphs, tables and diagrams Expression and justification of your own point of view Strong but condensed conclusions with recommendations for action where called for.
