Evidence vs Data

  • Compare Evidence and Data


Data is quantitative and/or qualitative representation of particular phenomena. Likewise, evidence is quantitative and/ or qualitative data which is supporting a conclusion. Therefore, data is lacking context and by extension supports no conclusion since it is unprocessed. Thereby, processing data to refine it and presenting it makes it evidence if it is supporting/ disproving a theory or hypothesis.


In your project, explain how you have transformed your data into evidence to support or challenge your hypothesis. [6 marks]
