CHAPTER 4

PRESENTATION, ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION OF DATA

Introduction
The methodology described in the previous chapter provided the baseline for
data-gathering. In this chapter, the presentation of data is systematically linked to the
format of the self-developed questionnaire attached in the appendix. The following will
be used to analyze data: description of the sample, main results, discussion,
presentation of data and interpretations of results.
This chapter will focus on the analysis and interpretation of data that was
collected for this study. According to De Vos (1998:203), data analysis entails that the
analyst break down data into constituent parts to obtain answers to research answers to
research questions and to test hypotheses. The analysis of the research data does not
in its own provide the answers to research questions.
The purpose of interpreting the data is to reduce it to an intelligible and
interpretable form so that the relations of research problems can be studied and tested,
and conclusions drawn. On the other hand, when the researcher interprets the research
results, he/she studies for their meaning and implications. The next section will discuss
the characteristics of the sample in order for the findings to be clearly understood.

Description of the Sample


As stated from the first chapter, the goal of the web program is to cater tutorial
web program on the aforementioned software. The researcher employed a survey for
feedbacks. Data was collected by using questionnaires. The questionnaire was
delivered by hand to the respondents. A letter of approval from the client to conduct the
survey was attached to the questionnaires. The population of the study is the clients
students and also students from different schools. The total number of students was 50.
The sample was randomly selected from the above population. The sample size
then consisted of 50 respondents. 50 questionnaires were returned, 20 form the clients
students and 30 from different schools. The respondents were males and females of
different programs. The respondents had different academic programs. As stated in the
previous chapter, the respondents completed the self-prepared questionnaire. Data was
collected in February 2015.

MAIN RESULTS
The main results will draw on the description of the independent and dependent
variables of the study. Since the sample size was less than 100 respondents, the
researcher will mainly use raw frequencies to describe the biographic section of the
sample. The N-Value cannot exceed the total number of respondents. Frequency
distribution tables help the sample or to describe the sample. In other words, the
researcher becomes familiar with the demographic variables through the use of
frequency distribution tables.

Present Learning Environment


This project study looked in the topics considered in developing an online tutorial.
