This is generally the longest section of the research project. The objective is to present and explain the data rather than draw interpretations or conclusions. The findings should be presented and analyzed on the basis of the research questions, specific objectives or hypotheses.
Tables, charts or graphs should be used to present quantitative data when appropriate. A brief description in words of what is shown in the table or figure should be provided. A general rule is to prepare the table or figure and the text, in such a way that they can stand alone in describing the outcomes of the study.
A summary or synopsis of the major findings of the study should be provided at the end of the chapter.
