Reports tend to be long documents so they therefore need to have a structure. Most long reports have the following sections. Check with your teacher / lecturer for specific assessment requirements.
Section 1: preliminary pages
Section 2: the 'guts' or body of the report
The type of report and its content will help to establish what headings should be used. These headings are only guidelines.
Section 3: supplementary materials
Many long reports provide additional material in appendices.
