A well-designed experiment will produce mounds of data. This data is like the forensic evidence at a murder trial, and your role is like both the prosecution and the defense. You must weigh the evidence. Evaluate the data to determine whether or not it supports your hypothesis. Sort through it all, and organize it into a meaningful presentation of tables and/or figures. Sometimes statistical tests or other calculations are required to evaluate the significance of the results.
