Depending on the research questions, your project or program, and what type of information you require, we work with you to design a data collection plan. We collect data through a variety of methods and tools. For qualitative data we do interviews, observations, focus groups, and document, image, and other archival analysis. For quantitative data we do online surveys, in person paper surveys, surveys and exit tickets for smart phones, etc. and many other more complex mixed methods such as concept mapping. Our goal is to have valid and reliable data.

Once we have collected the data, we then get everything ready for the analyses we have planned. We use statistical software to run descriptive statistics, and other appropriate calculations such as correlations, t-tests, and ANOVAs. We create the appropriate charts and tables, and summary results of both quantitative data and qualitative data. We align the findings to the research questions.
