Basics of Executive Summary
As a student, you should complete an executive summary when specifically requested to do so. An executive summary is a comprehensive review of a larger document. For example, a 10-page report may begin with a single-page executive summary all of the main information in the longer report.
Any findings, conclusions, recommendations, or other details that appear in the larger document must be touched on in the executive summary. Readers should be able to read the executive summary alone and have a complete understanding of the larger document in its entirety.
A good executive summary grabs your reader’s attention and lets them know what it is you do and why they should read the rest your paper.
