I think I did this coursework a couple of years ago...
Start out with a clear and simple aim, but make sure you choose one that you can write lots about (e.g. "I want to find out whether people with a higher _____ will also have a higher ____") - work with numbers (like height), not words (like eye colour) as you can do much more with the data.
Then go through everything you do to the data in as much detail as you can, such as how you obtained a random sample. Represent the data in as many ways as you can (different types of graphs to show different things, investigating correlation of data, how the data is distributed, ...)
Basically, just use all the methods of data manipulation you know (as long as it's relevant!) and make sure to always add conclusions!

Explain everything as much as you can. At every point, say "I am going to...(full exlpanation)", then do it, then say "This shows me...(full conclusion)" or something similar.
