I plan to analyze my data by first compiling the data into a computer excel sheet. This will then allow me to create charts and graphs that will best represent my data visually. I feel that I can best analyze my data in this form. It gives me a nice visual allowing for comparison and analyzing. It will also be the best way to represent the data that I will be collecting.
I found this website that brought up these fine points:
- What pattern do you see?
- What does this graph tell you?
- Who could use this data? How could they use it?
- Why is this data shown in a line graph? (Teacher Vision, 2013)
These are important questions to contemplate when analyzing your data. We need to be constantly narrowing our thinking to be specific on what information we are trying to get from the research. Being able to focus on a few points and really looking closely at them we will be better suited to explain the research data we have collected.
