Abstract

This study aims to investigate the purpose and identity in students’ technical reports in one state polytechnic in Bandung. This study used a case study research design which employed two data collection techniques, i.e. the documentation of students’ technical report and interview. The data were, then, analyzed based on the theory of purpose and identity in writing (e.g. Ivanic, 1998), Genre Analysis in ESP (e.g. Swales, 1990) and Systemic Functional Linguistics (e.g. Halliday, 1989) which were validated by triangulation. The results indicate: first, from text analysis some students could not realise the purpose and identity in their texts clearly. Second, as the interview data revealed, students’ inability occured due to their limited knowledge in realising purpose and identity in writing particularly in the technical report. The findings above suggest that as this capacity is not given, the students need more guidance so that they have a better command of some components to realise purpose and identity, especially their capacity to use the linguistic features explicitly and carefully. All these may also reflect the urgency to provide the students in the site with a great deal of assistance and explicit teaching in a writing process and efforts to expose students to some teaching programs with a view to improving their ability in writing in the future. Keywords: purpose and identity, technical report writing, texts analyses.
