Analyze Data and Report Results
How do you know it worked, or didn’t work? Students will likely need help in examining the data. Use sample data from the full project examples to help students practice looking for trends in the data. Using a table or other graphic organizer helps to organize the data so it can be reviewed. Often a graph of the data, if appropriate, will help students see trends or compare a before and after situation.
Report Results and share it with your fellow scientists. Provide students with clear expectations on what should be included in the report by using the criteria checklist that is provided on this site.
