  • 7. Point of View  Stick to third-person point of view as much as possible.  If you have to refer to yourself for a valid reason, use “I.” Do not refer to yourself as “this writer,” “this author,” or “this researcher.”  Valid reasons include describing the steps you took in conducting and experiment or using a personal anecdote to help support a point.
  • 8. Hard and Soft Evidence  Facts and statistics – hard evidence  Examples and illustrations – soft evidence  Expert opinion – soft evidence
  • 9. Fact versus Opinion  Facts are objective  Opinions are subjective  Objective means that something is provable, verifiable, and true.  Subjective means that something cannot be proven one way or the other, is not verifiable, and is therefore opinion.
  • 10. Research Report versus Paper  A research report is filled with facts and does not argue anything or advocate one position or the other.  A research paper takes a position; however, it builds a case with hard evidence and facts.  The more hard evidence and facts, the stronger the paper. The more soft evidence and opinion, the weaker the paper.
