Training Data Collectors

Anytime there will be more than one person involved in collecting data, it's important to train them to implement the survey, observation or interview in precisely the same way.  They need to be trained on the meaning of every question, the procedures they should follow when collecting data, and how to handle questions from participants.

Once your data collectors have been trained, you will want to asses their readiness to collect data before they go into the field.
