How do you analyse, present and evaluate your findings?

After you’ve carried out your fieldwork, you need to analyse your findings by looking carefully at them so you can understand them.

Then you’re ready to present your findings and explain to others what you have found out.

You can evaluate your findings by deciding how well your investigation went, and how you could improve it next time.
