Analyze the Collected Information

Analyze the Collected Information

Once you have collected the data, you must spend time interpreting its meaning. What clues does it provide about the child/group? What patterns can you see? How does it fit in with what is known about typical development? How might adult/child or child/child relationships be affecting what you see? What about the environment and classroom climate? Take note of consistent patterns of behavior as you analyze your data.
