Identification of the levels of measurement of variables in the study
Description of the appropriateness of the levels of measurement of the study variables
Discussion of how the data was displayed (i.e., graphs, tables)
Discussion examining the appropriateness of the data displays (Strengths and weaknesses? Were they appropriate? Why or why not?)
