A research report describes the results of a survey, interviews, focus groups or any other type of qualitative or quantitative research. Even if they aren’t necessarily “researchers”, most international development practitioners will still need to write a basic research report at some point in their career. Either for a baseline or endline survey, needs assessment, or to describe the results of interviews or focus groups with program participants. This template can be used as a starting point for any type of basic research report (qualitative or quantitative).
This research report template is appropriate when:
- You need to write a report after conducting surveys, interviews, focus groups, or any other type of qualitative or quantitative research.
- You need to write a report for a simple baseline or endline survey, or needs assessment.
This research report template is NOT appropriate when:
- You need to write an academic research report.
- You need to write a report for a very complex or large research project (you could start with this template, but it would need a lot of modifications).
