Drawing Conclusions from the Data

Given that the study may generate many types of data, both qualitative and quantitative, the analysis approaches may vary greatly. Qualitative researchers typically use multiple forms of data (e.g., interviews, observations, and documents) and may use inductive methods in which they build patterns, categories, or themes from the bottom up. Quantitative data analysis relies on counting and comparison in frequency or differences between variables and utilizes statistical analysis to determine significance. 

The Pell Institute offers a comprehensive guide to the tools for handling quantitative and qualitative data.

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Guide from Vanderbilt University includes information on identifying and analyzing evidence.
