Stage 2: Data Analysis: Analytics
According to Pat Thompson, there are three stages to empirical analysis, which we will adopt for the purposes of planning your analytical journey on this project. The second stage is analytics. In this stage you are asking, “What might this mean?” Pat describes this as “here the findings are interrogated, critically appraised, and extended by bringing them into conversation with relevant literatures. In quantitative research this is the stage at which multiple regression analysis is conducted . In qualitative studies the writer constructs a meta narrative about the whole project.”
Using the data you have collected, conduct the analysis of your data for your final paper. Using MS Excel, do the calculations/regressions, etc for your data and submit for this portion of the project.
