Assignment 2: Data Collection and Plan for Analysis
How you collect, manage, and assess data can affect the evaluation of the implementation. If the data collection resources are not functional and/or are not measuring what was meant to be measured, the evaluation and dissemination of results will be flawed. Therefore, it is important to consider how you will assess the data collected and determine if what you are using is working.
For this Assignment, you will assess the data you have collected thus far in the implementation. Using your data, determine whether your scorecard is functional and appropriate. You will explore the best approach for analysis to ultimately evaluate the implementation.
