Data Analysis and Reporting Considerations in Evaluation.
Wolf, Richard M.
The path from a collection of observations and measurements to a set of warranted conclusions is fraught with hazards. This chapter describes the path and offers some guidance on how to negotiate it. It also discusses presenting results in a way that can be understood by nontechnically trained persons. It should enable the reader to better identify and classify each variable in a study in terms of its status and scale of measurement; acquire information about the data to be analyzed; identify the stages of treatment of data; select an appropriate statistical procedure; and present the results of a statistical analysis in a way that can be understood by teachers, administrators, school board members, and parents.
