Report time!

It is that time of year again! When I started using TPRS I found it difficult to write appropriate report comments for my classes. I used as a rough guide some explanations about TPRS in the back of the Big CI Book. This year I have refined my comments further. I include them here in case they help anyone else who is struggling. Feel free to use and adapt for  your situation:
