Which of these characteristics of technical writing is most important for students to learn in introductory classes?
Empirical, specific, and accurate
Short and concise; few long prose passages
Organized to allow non-linear reading; repeated information so sections "stand alone"
Use or adapt information from other documents
Co-authored or collaboratively written
Written in a style close to spoken language; not flowery or ornate
Standard format: little room for creativity in style; use of headings and sub-headings
Passive voice may be used (to focus more on facts)
May use bullet points
Use of visual elements: Graphs, tables, equations
Overall organization: a clear logical progression from one idea to the next
Some other element that I will explain in a comment.
