  1. Tables and Figures

  2. Tables • Efficient way to present data. • Exact numerical values. • Limited in number. • Can help reader compare data. • APA Manual pages 149-154.

  3. Relationship of Table to Text • Tables must be understood without the help of explanation in the text. • The text discusses the highlights. • Standard statistical abbreviations do not need to be explained.

  4. Points to Consider • Combine tables that repeat data. • A table is a relationship between columns and rows and figure can be a pictorial or illustration. • Number all tables in order of mention in the test. • When constructing a research article, develop tables first and then write your text.

  5. Points to Consider • Title all tables. • Specific types of tables • ANOVA • Regression • Correlations

  6. Table Checklist • Is the table necessary? • Is the entire table double spaced? • Are all tables consistent in presentation? • Are the titles brief yet explanatory? • Does every column have a heading? • Are all abbreviations explained? • Is the table mentioned in the text?

  7. Figures • A figure is a chart, drawing, photo or graph. • A figure should augment rather than duplicate the text. • Convey essential facts. • Is not distracting. • Easy to read and understand. • APA manual 177-181.
