Data Collection: Procedures, Schedule, and Monitoring
By Daniel R. Zalles, Ph.D.
It is assumed that by this point in your evaluation project,
you have determined your evaluation questions, who your respondent will be, whether you
will collect the data from an entire population of interest to you or from a sample, what sample
size you desire, and what instruments you will use. For more on these topics, see the Methodological
Approaches and Sampling module and the Instrument Triangulation and Selection module.
The objectives of this module are for you to understand
- How to orchestrate multiple data collection procedures
- What needs to be done to ensure efficient and accurate data collection.
