Step 4: The analysis
In the analysis stage, the information that has been obtained from the external orientation, the intake meeting, the study of documents and the orientational interviews is arranged and interpreted in order to make ﬁnal agreements on the formulation of the problem. These agreements will be made in Step 5 – the feedback session. The main subjects in the feedback presentation act as convenient headings for the analysis. The main points in this presentation are:
■ Relevant ﬁndings – opinions and process descriptions ■ Proposal for deﬁnitive formulation of the problem and
assignment ■ Indication of the importance attached to the solution of
the problem ■ Speciﬁcation of the way in which the student can con-
tribute to solving the problem ■ Plan of action.
