findings and reccommendations
This chapter does not include discussing other research literature or the implications of your findings. Usually you begin by outlining any descriptive or exploratory/confirmatory analyses (e.g., reliability tests, factor analysis) that were conducted. Next, address the results of the tests of hypotheses, then discuss any ex post facto analysis. Tables and/or figures should be used to illustrate and summarize all numeric information. For qualitative or historical projects, this chapter usually is organized by the themes or categories uncovered in your research. If you have conducted focus groups or interviews, it is often appropriate to provide a brief descriptive (e.g., demographic) profile of the participants first. Direct quotation and paraphrasing of data from focus groups, interviews, or historical artifacts then are used to support the recommendations made. In some cases, this analysis also includes information from field notes or other interpretative data e.g., life history information). Discussion of Findings Data analysis, limitations of project design, conclusions drawn should be included. Discuss limitations of size or sampling. Share what your reviewers/participants said in the evaluation tool. Share actual quotes and how you coded the material. What conclusion can you draw from the data? Did it confirm or contradict research found in your literature review? Recommendations What are you going to do in the future with this project? Now that you finished the project, what are you going to do with this information and/or project? This section should be about 6-8 pages and content should be separated with APA first and second level headings.
