  • Data and Analysis
    • What did I find out?
    • Summarize and present in table or graph
  • Conclusion
    • What did I learn? What do my results mean? How does my inquiry relate to a larger context or in the real world?

Conclusion should exhibit thinking at the analysis and evaluation levels.
  • Restate your hypothesis. Was your hypothesis supported or refuted?
  • Summarize important data or results.
  • Suggest implications of your findings. What do your results mean on a larger scale?
  • State an additional unanswered question worthy of further investigation.
  • Present limitations/errors to your inquiry.
student conclusion example
Student Conclusion Example
  • Conclusion: A gene’s dominance will have a more direct effect than recessive genes on the traits of students in Ohio and Washington. According to the data in comparing the frequency of dominant versus recessive traits on the students in Ohio and Washington, my hypothesis was refuted.By comparing the percentages of students who had a certain trait in each state, it was concluded that dominant traits were not the most frequently expressed phenotype. Interestingly, both schools had a majority of the students with the same traits regardless of whether the most frequent phenotype resulted from a recessive trait or a dominant trait. The results of the comparison show that both schools expressed the dominant traits for earlobes, pinky fingers, and colorblindness in higher frequency than the recessive traits. The rest of the phenotypes: white forelocks, dimples, thumb shape and mid digit hair favored the recessive phenotypes. Because the results of these schools were so similar, it may be safe to hypothesize that similar traits may be expressed amongst all populations in America, but dominant traits may not be the more frequently expressed phenotype. It would be interesting to compare different communities across America to see if this hypothesis is true. On a larger scale it would be interesting to compare the results of an American community to the results of communities in other countries. Limitations to my inquiry were not knowing the ethnicities and the amount of students in the study. Each school only had approximately 20 students participating, which may have skewed the results of the test.
