Synthesizing Information

What it means and How to do it

what does synthesizing information and drawing conclusions mean
What does synthesizing information and drawing conclusions mean?
  • When we synthesize information, we are gathering information from two or more resources and combining them to discuss one topic.
  • We do this to write papers or to answer questions.
  • You need to make connections among the different pieces of information and then draw conclusions.
taking a closer look
Taking a Closer Look
  • Sometimes authors do not always state things directly, so you have to ask yourself what the author suggests or implies in the writing.
    • Based on that information, you are then able to draw a conclusion.
  • You need to “read between the lines” or “put two and two together” to draw conclusions.
from concluding to synthesizing
From Concluding to Synthesizing
  • Once you have drawn conclusions from your texts, you will often be asked to use facts from these sources as the basis for a new conclusion.
    • This is synthesizing.
  • You are sometimes asked to synthesize textual information with visual information (graphs, charts, maps, etc.) too.
questions to ask yourself
Questions to Ask Yourself
  • What is the author suggesting here?
  • What other ideas make sense based on this passage?
  • How do the visual materials add to the text?
  • How does combining textual with visual information make ideas and information easier to understand?
remember
Remember:
  • You should draw conclusions based on information in the passage, along with what you know.
  • When you synthesize, you are drawing a conclusion based on the information from different sources.
  • Synthesize the information prior to answering any questions to assure your answers are complete and based on all information.
