Copyright © 2014 by The University of Kansas Collecting and Analyzing Data
Copyright © 2014 by The University of Kansas What do we mean by collecting data? Collecting data means putting your design for a measurement system into operation. Collecting data involves gathering information through observation, interviews, testing, surveys, and/or other means; recording it in appropriate ways; and organizing it so that it’s easier to work with.
Copyright © 2014 by The University of Kansas What do we mean by analyzing data? Analyzing data involves examining the information you’ve collected in ways that reveal the relationships, patterns, trends, etc. that can be found within it. Data can be quantitative (collected as numbers) or qualitative (collected as narrative information, records, journal notes, etc.) Quantitative data is usually analyzed by subjecting it to one or more graphical displays or statistical operations that demonstrate the significance of relationships among variables.
Copyright © 2014 by The University of Kansas Data are also usually analyzed logically, by looking for patterns and relationships revealed within them. Qualitative data can sometimes be turned into quantitative data by, for instance, counting (e.g., the number of times a behavior occurs in various circumstances) or by rating on a number scale such dimensions as importance, satisfaction, or quality (e.g., the quality of housing or quality of life in neighborhoods). A combination of quantitative and qualitative data often yields the best overall picture. What do we mean by analyzing data?
Copyright © 2014 by The University of Kansas Why should you collect and analyze data for your evaluation? This can show whether or not there was actually any significant change in the dependent variable(s) you hoped to influence. This can show connections between or among various factors that may have an effect on the results of your evaluation. This can imply or show the reasons that your work was effective or ineffective.
Copyright © 2014 by The University of Kansas Why should you collect and analyze data for your evaluation? This can provide you with credible evidence to show funders and the community that your program is successful, or that you’ve uncovered, and are fixing, the elements that are barriers to success. This can show that you’re serious about evaluation and about improving your work. This can show the field that what you’re doing works well, and thus pave the way for others to use similar methods and approaches as best practices
Copyright © 2014 by The University of Kansas When and by whom should data be collected and analyzed? Data collection should start no later than when you begin your work and continue throughout. If you want to see if any change is part of a long-term trend, you should collect data for some time before your program actually starts. If you want to understand long-term effects, you should collect data on participants for some time after they leave your program. Data should be collected and analyzed by people who are capable of doing so. Data collection and analysis can be done by anyone from community members who have been trained to professionals with experience in conducting studies.
Copyright © 2014 by The University of Kansas How do you collect and analyze data? Implement the observational system you’ve planned. Organize the data you’ve collected. Conduct data graphing, visual inspection, statistical analysis, or other operations on the data as appropriate. Take note of any significant or interesting results. Interpret the results.
