For a Literature Survey, you have to read other people's writing and present evidence of your reading. This could be an annotated bibliography, an anthology or a literature review chapter. A Methodology Recount will expect you to present an account of the procedures you followed and your findings of an experimental study. A typical example is a laboratory report. Research Reports are generally your longest assignments and demonstrate your ability to conduct a complete piece of research. An example is a final-year project or dissertation.
