revise or discard your hypothesis.
if the data from an investigation does not support the original hypothesis then either:the method of investigation may be flawed and may need to be changed and repeated.the interpretation of the data may be incorrect and should be reviewed.the hypothesis needs to be reevaluated to possibly conform to the data.
a hypothesis is a prediciton you make before you carry out and investigation. the investigation should prove your hypothesis right or wrong.
your conclusion should support your hypothesis
that depends on the result of the experiment. the experiment is a way to test a hypothesis, and it's completely fine if the experiment disproves the hypothesis. ideally, though, the experiment will support the hypothesis.
reevaluate your hypothesis, or reject the hypothesis. you should also recheck your data.
come up with new hypothesis
then they should say that their hypothesis is incorrect and write down the conclusion.
the experiment that you will design is done to test the hypothesis.
first you need a purpose. the purpose should start with the purpose if my investigation is. next is the hypothesis. the hypothesis has to have if, then, and because. then is your materials and procedure. after that, you have to collect the data. then there is the anaylisis. the anaylisis has to have i learned that. finally, there is the conclusion. it has to have four sentences. i learned that, my hypothesis was..., my hypothesis was correct or incorrect, and next time i will.
draw up a new hypothesis based on your research
regroup and propose another theory propose another hypothesis
propose another hypothesis
false- the hypothesis is your prediction of what you expect to happen. if the data does not agree with your hypothesis you simply explain why your hypothesis did not come true and possibly investigate variable which would allow your hypothesis to come true.
the hypothesis is an educated guess, it should not affect the investigation at all, it is merely a summized thought based on known evidence and a prediction of a possible outcome. a scientist however does not use that hypothesis to get a result, they merely see if the result lines up with the hypothesis. a quick example is you see a movie billboard, it has squirrels on it fighting, you can hypothesize the movie is about squirrels fighting. now if you go see the movie and it has no squirrels at all, your hypothesis is wrong.... you can not go to the movie, see no squirrels, then squint your eyes really tight till the animals that are in the movie look like squirrels fighting, just to say your hypothesis was right. it should have no impact on the results of scientific study... it is merely an educated guess at a possible outcome of the tests.
when the evidence in a scientific experiment does not support the hypothesis the scientist:confirm through repeated experimentation that the evidence is validreject the hypothesisdevelop another hypothesis that is consistent with the valid evidence
propose another hypothesis
try again and see if it does
write it up and publish.
if data is an outlier, or does not fit with the other data, omit it. if the information gathered does not support your hypothesis, and you are sure that you have correct data that supports your hypothesis, check your information again, and maybe to the experiment again. if the data does not support your hypothesis and it is correct data, then you need to state this and why it is so in the discussion and the conclusion.
as a good scientist you should always state the question in your hypothesis. you should repeat your thoughts compared to your data. make sure to add a couple of details to support your final hypothesis. when doing this there is no such thing as a bad hypothesis!
an experiment is performed to generate more data. if the data proves to not support the hypothesis the experiment was still useful. you could reproduce your experiment to see if it is performing the way it should. after you have confirmed the experiment is performing correctly you then could devise another experiment to further test your hypothesis or accept the result and revise your hypothesis.
if the data from an experiment does not support an hypothesis, a person can try the experiment again by changing some of the variables. in an experiment, one part stays constant and one part is a variable. the variable can be changed until the hypothesis is proven true.
if you mean the result from an experiment, then yes. you ask a question, form a hypothesis, preform an experiment, and you get data. you analysis the data and this should tell you whether your hypothesis was right or wrong. this is the scientific method
test your hypothesis. nikki o. :-)
