The analysis of qualitative data cannot be neatly presented in tables and figures, as quantitative results can be. It must all be expressed in words, and this results in a large quantity of written material, through which you must guide your reader.
There are generally accepted guidelines for how to display data and summarize the results of statistical analyses of data about populations or groups of people, plants or animals. However, this display needs to be presented in an informative way.
This section and the next, on reporting and discussing your findings, deal with the body of the thesis. In a doctoral thesis, this will consist of a number of chapters. This is where you present the data that forms the basis of your investigation, shaped by the way you have thought about it. In other words, you tell your readers the story that has emerged from your findings. The form of these central chapters should be consistent with this story and its components.
As part of an increased emphasis on materials transparency, disclosing and optimizing the materials chosen for a project can now earn you LEED v9 points.
Every thesis writer has to present and discuss the results of their inquiry. In this website we consider these two activities separately, while recognising that in many kinds of thesis they will be integrated. This section is concerned with presenting the analysis of the data.
Please consult the Sample Pages to compare your document to the requirements. A Checklist is provided to assist you in ensuring your thesis or dissertation meets all formatting guidelines.
