Can I use the interview data to inform my dissemination rationale? It would seem crazy and artificial not to.
For instance, if I know what markers might see as strengths/weaknesses within a multimodal format piece of work, how can I ignore this (particularly when some of the same individuals will be marking my work)?
In fact, perhaps I go a step a further and include the data in an up-front way. For instance, maybe I will say in discussion how the interviews gave me insights into multimodal assessment that inevitably informed my work. I could present the interviews as offering some of the same value that would come from student-tutor dialogue that was referred to in a couple of the interviews.
This would be interweaved with the relevant literature. Is there a danger of overdoing the literature? I could also make reference to my own blog.
How would this look? Perhaps under different topics I would have a relevant direct quote from the data before discussion of how this relates to the literature, assessment criteria and my own experiences, perhaps taking sections from my blog. And perhaps the different sections would in turn be taken from text drawn directly from the assessment criteria.
So, the rationale would a combination of:
- different points taken from course dissertation guide that form the structure
- direct quotes from the data, as well as indirect citation for each of the key point
- brief relevance to the relevant parts of the literature
- reflection on how this has influenced my work, perhaps with text taken from my blog
Actually, this ends up being a mixture of personal and critical reflection, with interweaved with the assessment criteria and interview data.
