They find that they are able to get many new ideas by reading the dissertations that others had written. One of the observations that they should be looking at is how the data has been presented. It is all very well to collect a lot of data by way of samples and polls and surveys. But it is even more important that the students learn how the data has been presented.
There are many students who do not present the data properly and they find that when they submit the project in front of the university board they get their marks deducted for poor presentations. This makes the students feel quite bad. After all, they put so much effort into collecting the data, then should they get their marks deducted for poor presentations. They might think it is unfair, but the professors can only give marks for the content that is in front of them.
So the students should look through the sample presentations and make sure that they understand how the data has been presented and what kind of imagination has gone into making it creative and interesting. They should look through these ideas and while they need not necessarily copy it, they can use it as a platform for designing some inventive ideas of their own. This way when they show their data to the professors of the review board, they will be impressed with the work and the efforts put in by the students.
