In order to plan for change, data collection and analysis need to take place in the research cycle. The analysis process helps a researcher plan for improvements by answering the vital question, “What does the data reveal?” Professionals may gain a deeper understanding of the learning environment when data is analyzed and combined with research investigations.

- Themes or patterns found in the collected data
- How the information is relevant to the research questions
- Unexpected information revealed by the data, or additional research questions raised by the data
- Actionable steps which may be implied or informed by the data
Support your work with 3-5 scholarly resources.
