Writing up the Data
- First, come up with your title. Also, jot down notes on what you will say/do in your introduction.
- You were asked to finish your literature review for class. Transition to a methodology description at the end of the literature review. Here is the sample again: These exact questions shaped the format of a small focus group in 2014 at a large, public urban university of entering college students in the northeastern region of the United States. Divergent views were encouraged such that students knew no consensus or agreement was necessary or even positive. Conversation was allowed to flow without interjections. Make sure that you give your literature review a subsection title.
- Now, let's move on t the data. Change each person's name. Give them an actual name--- not a letter, number or category like Interviewee #1. You cannot use anyone's real name in such research and you also cannot say John Jay College! Not ever!
- You cannot simply list who said what when you write up your data in the findings section. You have to tell an interesting story. The FINDINGS SECTION must be written like a report. Here is a suggestion: Come up with TWO main themes. Discuss each. Then describe how your interviewees' responses matched these two themes.
- Start writing your FINDINGS SECTION now. Make sure that you give your findings a subsection title.
- If you have time, start working on your discussion section. Make sure that you give your discussion a subsection title.
