Transcript of Summary of Findings, Conclusions and Recommendations

Steps offered to solve or improve the negative findings of the study
Summary of Findings, Conclusions and Recommendations
Introductory Paragraph
There should be a brief statement about the main purpose of the study, the population or respondents, the period of the study, method of research used, the research instrument, and the sampling design.
There should be no explanations made.
Due to clarity demand, summary of findings must contain each specific question under the statement of the problem and must be written first to be followed by the findings that would answer it.
The findings should be textual generalizations, that is, a summary of the important data consisting of text and numbers.
No deductions, nor inference, nor interpretation should be made otherwise it will only be duplicated in the conclusion.
Only the important findings, the highlights of the data, should be included in the summary, especially those upon which the conclusions should be based.
Must be stated as concisely as possible.
Use past tense to present the result of findings of the investigation.
