From the looks of the attachments provided you have an interesting research project underway. From reviewing the attachments, I am assuming you are writing a research proposal or an undergraduate project that mimics a research proposal. However, you may be using a deferent term like "research design" or "survey development." Nevertheless, all components are incorporated into an overall research proposal. This is a very important skill to develop because this is how you get grant money or get a thesis research project approved. In the real world, a well written research proposal can bring in thousands of dollars for a team of researchers.

You are now covering the final stages of a research project in the form of planning one. The action of "processing and analyzing" is just that simple. If, you were completing this research project today, and had reached this level, you would have a pile of data in ...
