In this chapter we discussed the basic components and types of graphs and tables used to visually organize data collected in your research. Using the guidelines outlined in this chapter, you will be able to develop graphic displays appropriate for conducting visual analysis (see Chapter 9). While the information presented may appear cumbersome, it is imperative that you collect and organize your data accurately to ensure reliable data analysis. Selecting improper graphic displays or graphing data incorrectly may lead to unwarranted changes in instructional programs, incorrect conclusions of relations between dependent and independent variables, or unclear effects of interventions.
