"Tôi viết bản báo cáo này."

Translation:I write this report.

English meaning sounds awkward. I'm writing this report is more correct.

It'd also be fine in the past "I wrote this report"; and in fact, that's the right interpretation of this statement. However, there ought to be a note somewhere in the course pointing out that grammatical tenses aren't often necessary in Vietnamese. Tenses in Vietnamese are usually contextual.
