If you used particular equipment, processes, or materials, you will need to be clear and precise in how you describe them.You must give enough detail for another researcher to replicate your study.
In addition to the research context, there may be other relevant contexts to present for example: It can be difficult to identify the best order for sections in this chapter because the rationale for your choice of specific research question can be complicated, and there may be several inter-linked reasons why the research is needed.
It is worth taking time to develop a logical structure as this will help to convince examiners of the relevance of your research, and that you understand its relevance.
It should be able to stand alone in representing why and how you did what you did, and what the results and implications are.
It is often only one page long, and there may be a word limit to adhere to.
Attending to the very restrictive word / space limit, while at the same including all the relevant material is quite a challenge.
It might be useful to look at how others have managed.
It will also provide you with a framework to refer back to in your discussion chapter, when you reflect on the extent to which your research has achieved what it set out to do.
In these chapters a straightforward description is required of how you conducted the research.
“I know I’m good at writing so I can leave it to later”.
“I want to get everything sorted out in my mind before I start writing or I’ll just end up wasting my time re-writing”.
