20th April – 4th May

Now it is time to interpret you results to present a response to the chosen product.

You can now take a clear look at the report as a whole, and see if you can draw and conclusions to the original question.

You have:-

  • ·       Audience Profile
  • ·       a content analysis
  • ·       Definition of Effects Theories
  • ·       Audience Response

So, write a conclusion that draws all these elements together – for example, people reading Harry potter often write their own stories, showing active participation in these forms of media.

So, you will have your own personal response to the product, as well as an audience response, which you can now explore using effects theories and content analysis.

Remember, we are focusing on Violent Media effecting society – so, if we have people watching violent films and then re-enacting them (admitting this in focus group), this would show hypodermic needle theory, an active participation and some elements of copycat theory. This would lead us to conclude that there is a link. But we need to refer to the evidence!

Apply what you have found, in general, to other products. Does what you have found out answer the original Question?

Make sure all your information has been presented, explained, and then write your response and a conclusion to explain everything you have discovered.
