This section follows on directly after the results section using a centred bold heading (like for the Method and Results sections). After presenting the results in the previous section, you are required to evaluate and interpret the implications with respect to your original hypotheses. You will examine, interpret, and qualify the results and draw inferences and conclusions from them. A discussion should include a summary of the results, a statement of whether the hypothesis/es were supported or not, findings linked to past research, an interpretation of the research findings, implications, limitations, future directions, and concluding comments. Check your assessment outline for specific requirements relating to the discussion. It is okay to introduce new references in the discussion when new literature will enhance your explanation of a result, provide an explanation of unexpected findings, or can assist with providing implications or future recommendations. The components of a discussion in addition to appropriate writing style and formatting are explained below.
