Quick Tips For Writing Your Dissertation Results

A dissertation is divided into different sections or chapters. Each chapter has what it is designed to gather in the study. However, all the chapters are interrelated, and the previous chapter builds up to the following one. The interdependency of the sections must appear in a very consistent manner in the development of the sections. Each section must show the linkage to the previous section and justify the means through which it develops and captures what it is designed to do. The dissertation results are guided by two main principles, which lead to the section's success or failure and clarity and context.

The Dissertation results need to be very clear to give any reader an easy time to understand and link the results together without struggles. This is why graphs and data presentation styles are used to visualize the results in a profound way that helps readers better understand. Additionally, the results need to be in context as failure to remain in context will waste all the efforts done in the study. Irrelevant data appears tedious and redundant. Therefore, the researcher should remain guided by the research goals and questions to present their results to the best. A dissertation aims to solve a problem or add to the general knowledge. Therefore, the knowledge gap should be well captured and responded to by the results. However, this does mean that the researcher should go on discussing the data presented. The Dissertation results include the presentation of the data without discussion.

The following are quick tips that help with Dissertation results.

Confirm with your research guide or supervisor how you should develop the Dissertation results.

The need to confirm with your guide on developing Dissertation results is to know whether you are required to develop the results separately from the discussion or combine them. It is essential to clarify this point to avoid doing double work, which may be costly in time and resources. Different institutions and genres require different methods of the composition of the Dissertation results. Therefore, confirming gives the researcher confidence to proceed with the rest of the Dissertation results.

Check similar reports in the same genre.

As mentioned in the first pit above, the researcher must clarify several things before presenting the research findings. Comparing the past studies done in the same genre helps the researcher understand the general requirement of the genre concerning the Dissertation results. The different genre requires different styles of developing the Dissertation results. For example, most medical genres require separation of the Dissertation results from the discussion whole; most of the social sciences prefer combining the sections. Therefore, evaluating the past reports in the same genre gives the researcher confidence in the best-preferred method in the genre of the study topic.

Providing a linking introductory paragraph

As mentioned in the introduction of this article, dissertation chapters are interdependent and cannot do as stand-alone. Therefore, a quality dissertation is consistent in showing the link between the previous chapters. The introductory paragraph in your Dissertation results will provide the avenue of mentioning the data analysis methods used in the previous section and relation to the research objectives and questions. This gives the reader an easy time in flowing and knowing what to expect in the chapter. The linking paragraphs should not necessarily be very detailed. The temptation of repeating the previous chapter needs to be resisted and do a synopsis of the methods used to yield the presented results. No justification of means is required in the results as the chapter contains presenting the results as they are from the data analysis without defending the means used to reach the results. However, highlighting the results cannot be taken as a discussion but it should be done with much care.

Look back to your dissertation and focus on consistently developing the research goals.

The research goals are the guidelines and rubric that give a dissertation shape and focus. Therefore, the researcher should endear to stick to the research findings to avoid being out of context. The results of the data analyzed can include very many irrelevant things. The researcher should ensure that only relevant results are listed. However, this requires experience to avoid ignoring essential portions of the results. Nonetheless, capturing the whole result lot may make the report redundant and lose the focus of the research.

Consistently use graphs, tables, and figures.

The Dissertation results section aims to present the results in the most profound method to understand the results quickly. Therefore, data visualization styles are used like the figures, graphs, and tables to help bring out the data in snapshots. However, the use of these figures should be consistent and not repetitive as they may appear redundant. A quality dissertation is consistent and naturally flows without having a lot of clutter.
