    If you've done it with a bi-polar scoring system you could present the data for each aspect of environmental quality as a bar chart, or have a single bar chart with lots of different coloured bars according to each aspect. Then comment on it and describe trends.

    I considered doing that but I've already used a bar chart to present data and I'd like to show my examiner that I have a variety of skills… do you have any other ideas?
    thank you

    You should be using some simple presentation skills and some complex ones. Simple ones are like bar charts, line graphs, pictograms, labelled photos etc. Complex ones are like cross sections, scatter graphs with LOBF and annotated photos. I think you've got to have 2 complex presentation skills to access the high marks but your teacher should probably be teaching you and your class these and going through them.

    You also need 7 different techniques, so if you can get lots of different simple skills then you're doing well. Tables are simple presentation techniques.

    By bar chart I meant more like a bi-polar graph like this one

    I don't actually know of any websites but you can just use Excel by just using the creating-a-bar-chart tool thingy.

    This is an example.
