The results section of a report details the results or findings of the research. It answers the following questions:

  • What happened?
  • What was found?

There is no interpretation of the results, it only states the facts.

Presenting the data

How the findings are presented is important. Using visual data, eg tables and graphs, can help to summarise the results and make them easy to understand. However, if visual data is used, they must be referred to in text. Dot points / bullet lists are also useful ways to present information.
