In each section you should briefly describe what was done in the research and then discuss the benefits and problems with the action taken. Where appropriate you should offer recommendations for improvement. The final section requires you explain which aspects of the data collected you will use to address the specific research objectives listed in the previous section. You need to explain your choice.
