Data analysis and drawing conclusions

After you have collected data from experiments, observations and/or surveys, these data need to be analysed to draw conclusions/ inferences. Looking at the questionnaire/survey forms it is difficult to draw conclusions as the forms contain a lot of information hidden in them. You should analyse your data properly and make them presentable. It is wiser to represent your results and conclusions using a single diagram/ figure rather than pages of written report; figures/ diagrams make a report much more interesting and understandable.

While drawing conclusions you must try to focus at the important areas. Conclusions, which are very apparent, need not be given importance (for example, all people who were surveyed drink water regularly cannot be a conclusion. Without water human beings cannot survive).

Please note that your report should be concise and you should not unnecessarily go on adding pages to your report. Unnecessary increase in volume of the report reduces the overall quality of the project. However, your project report should clearly reflect your achievements during the project work.
