4.3.2 Synthesise information
Synthesising information is about assessing the new information and prior information in relation to each other, looking for logical relationships in the material, identifying the important ideas, and taking a critical attitude towards the material by relating it to your own views and experiences and thinking about how the material can be used. Synthesising information is not just summarising the information or identifying main points.
Synthesise your information research and include sources. Comment on the choices you made in selecting the information and its quality, and critically reflect on the method you used to take notes and the synthesis you produced.
