Data Collection Decision Tree

To help you decide how to collect the information or data you need to support your evaluation the following decision tree can help.  Think about the types of information you need and then use this as the starting point to navigate the tree to identify a suggested method for collecting the information.

This decision tree was developed in 2005 by Marsh and Glendenning so remember that there are also other ways to collect the information such as online surveys, text messaging, video messaging, social media, apps and other mobile technologies.
