When you are needed to write an assignment then the first thing that comes into your mind is, how I will be collecting the data that will be relevant to my assignment. The first thing that is needed, is you must ensure that you have read the guidelines carefully and you know all the things that are needed to be included in the assignment. Once you have understood all the requirements carefully then just start collecting data. There are some important things that you must consider such as:
When you start searching for the relevant data; keep one thing in your mind that it is a long process that can be time-consuming, so you are needed to plan it wisely. Consider your topic and then try to make the keywords for that purpose. Also think what kind of information will be needed, detailed, basic or the facts and figures. Decide what resources you can use to collect the information, whether you are needed to collect the information from the articles, books, websites, annual reports or the news articles.
To make it sure that you will be searching your data very easily in the short time; make the use of the keywords that you have made earlier for the search. If you are not able to find the relevant data then try to change the sequence of the keywords or use the synonyms to search the data. Don’t forget to add the name of the particular location with the keywords if you are needed to search the data for the specific location.
Don’t waste much time on searching one thing; if you can’t find the right thing then consider to change your searching technique.
For searching purpose use the different online journal articles, Google Scholar, online library of your university or the different study resources
Only use the authentic sources to collect the data and avoid the data that is present on the different discussion forums or other sites that are not considered as authentic. You can use the data from the official websites and the different newspaper articles also.
Collect the data according to the requirements such as what you will be adding in the background information, what data can be used for the main parts of the discussion etc.
Before using the data just go through it and make it sure that you have collected the relevant data and nothing is left.
These were some of the tips that can make it easier for you to search and collect the relevant information for your assignments. Before starting read the instructions provided by your teacher carefully and make a proper plan to make the whole process quicker and smoother.
