Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion

Step 5: Analyze Data and Draw a Conclusion

Now it is time for you to analyze your recorded data. Was your hypothesis correct? Incorrect? 

Collected data should be organized for fellow scientist to review. Often tables or graphs will be used to demonstrate data collected during the experiment. It can also be organized in form of graphic organizers, and even pictures. 

Your conclusion should state the following: Did your hypothesis hold? Do your results agree with your hypothesis? What happened? Summarize what your investigation showed. Accept or reject your hypothesis. You may also include other explanations, such as conditions that you were not able to control that may have affected the results.
