Week 4: Analyzing the Evidence

Imagine this:

During your research, you read that the rate of cancer deaths in the state of Maine is 177.5 per 100,000 people (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2018). You extract that information to use in your paper. You wonder: Is that a high number or a low number? Without the context of how that rate compares to other states and to the country as a whole, and without analysis explaining the relevance to your argument, the statistic is worthless.

Evidence does not mean much on its own without analysis. Analysis establishes the perspective from which readers view and understand the evidence—and it is an important part of crafting an argument. Through analysis, you can connect the dots or, in other words, show the reader your reasoning.

This week, you add analysis to clarify and give meaning to the evidence you paraphrased last week. You also track your progress through application and recording of feedback.

2- Discussion: Analysis

To generate analysis, scholarly writers ask themselves questions about the evidence, such as What does this piece of evidence mean? How does it bolster my argument? How does this piece of evidence connect to another piece? What do I want my readers to understand or “get” from this evidence?

In this Discussion, you practice answering these questions by analyzing the evidence from Week 3.

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review the Week 3 Discussion for your paraphrased evidence as well as any feedback received.
  • Review the Learning Resources on analysis.
  • Recall the argument you are making.

****Post your initial 1- to 2-paragraph response that addresses the following:

  • Using the evidence you identified and paraphrased in Week 3, analyze that evidence in the context of the argument you are making.
  • Additionally, reflect on the process of analyzing the evidence. Pose any questions and/or explain challenges that came up during the process.
