Chapter 5: Conclusions and Suggestions for Further Research (or Analysis and Synthesis; or Conclusions and Recommendations).
This chapter synthesizes and discusses the results in light of the study’s research questions, literature review, and conceptual framework.
In the majority of cases, if it’s not a table, it is a figure.
A figure’s labels denote the type of figure and its number, and a figure’s caption is its title and description.
Every figure must have a label and caption unless there is only one figure of its type in the document.
Use consecutive label numbers by order of appearance within the text. Illustrations that take up more than one page should have the label followed by “(Continued)” on the second page.Label and caption font size is the same as body text size.Use adequate (at least one return) and consistent spacing between a figure and its label and caption, and between the figure and text.The document’s title does not count as a heading level. A numbered, counted page should be inserted in front of your document’s appendix/appendices. Figures may be located in one of two places in your document.The word APPENDIX (or APPENDICES) should be centered about 1/3 down this page. You must choose one system, and use it consistently throughout your work.This chapter reflects a deep understanding of what lies beneath the findings—that is, what those findings .Interpretation is presented systematically, and is related to the themes or patterns that have emerged.Research questions are directly tied to the purpose.They should be specific, clearly stated, and open ended (stay away from yes/no questions if you can).In many ways, it provides validation for the researcher’s entrance into the ranks of the body of scholars in the field. Your document begins with its title repeated and centered on page one.The left margin must be at least 1.5 inches (recommend 1.7). Titles longer than one line should be single-spaced. Use regular, 12-point size for text and Times New Roman throughout the document. All headings, regardless of level, must be the same font size. No orphan lines may appear at the top or bottom of a page.
