If the execution of the project proceeds on correct lines, the data to be collected would be adequate & dependable. 7 3.Analysis of data: 3.Analysis of data After the data have been collected,the researcher turns to the task of analysing them. For the analysing the data take place by using diifferent technique; such as- -Coding -Editing -Tabulation 8 4.hypothesis-testing: 4.hypothesis-testing After analysing the data,the researcher is in a position to test the hypothesis. The hypothesis may be tested by the use of many test such as- Chi square test,t - test,F -test. depending upon the nature & object of research inquiry. Hypothesis-testing will result in either accepting or in rejecting. 9 5.Generalisations and interpretation: 5.Generalisations and interpretation If a hypothesis is tested & upheld several times,it may be possible for the researcher to arrive at generalisation i.e.,to build the theory. If the research had on hypothesis to start with,he might seek to explain his finding on the basis of some theory.It is known as interpretation. 10 6.Preparation of the report or the thesis:: 6.Preparation of the report or the thesis: Finally, the researcher has to prepare the report of what has been done by him. LAY-OUT OF REPORT PRELILIMINARY PAGES END MATTER MAIN TEXT 11 Parts of a report: Parts of a report 1.Introduction: Should contain a clear statement of the objective of research& explanation of methodology. 2.Summary of finding: Statement of findings & recommendation in non- technical language. 3.Main report: Report should be presented in logical sequence & broken down into readily identifiable section. 4.Conclusion: Again put down the results of research clearly & precisely. 12 Reference:: Reference: Trochim W.M.K.(2006) Research Method Knowledge base Research Methods & Statistical Techniques By, P.S.G.
