Dear writer

As you might already know/recall I have last part of my dissertation left to write, which is Discussion of Findings and Conclusions (Approx. 3500 words), which needs data to be collected for which I am going to conduct a survey and then interviews. Because of that I created a survey questionnaire which now needs editing. I have attached both PDF and converted word document version of the questionnaire.

In order to edit the questionnaire, please follow the instructions relating to Chapter 3: Discussion of Findings and Conclusions (Approx. 3500 words), so that the data collected will create basis for writing Chapter 3. Please see the instructions below:

In this section you should analyse your data. However, remember that the aim of your analysis is to answer your research questions! It might be useful to use a thematic approach to structure your analysis. Think about presenting your findings in different ways  this needs, however, to tie in with your research paradigm.

” How did you sort, choose and make sense of your data?

” How does your data support and/or contradict the literature on your topic?

” Anonymised raw data (e.g. charts) should be presented in Appendices. The structure of questionnaires / interview schedules should be presented and report of the responses to each question, but do not include every questionnaire.

” Whenever possible data should be tabulated and accompanied by commentary. Reference to relevant appendices should be made in the text.

” Take care not to indulge in assertions and assumptions. Take the available evidence and work with it, rather than engineering it to confirm a personal hypothesis.

” If data from video, tape recordings or interviews are used, be careful to note the conditions and any possible impact on the outcome; you can report statements made, to illustrate points. Anecdotal evidence must be acknowledged as such.

” Remember, most work involves too small a sample for results to  prove anything. The data provides indications and possible trends for further investigation. In education there are not truths  truth is transitory and relative to the criteria to which it applies at a specific time in history.

” Refer back to your introduction and note the intentions at the outset of your work and summarise your subsequent discoveries. Provide guides to the chapters and pages where supporting evidence can be found.

” Follow through with a statement of what value you would place on the work for yourself, for other professionals in the field and indicate areas of need for future research, with reasons.
