Data Collector Training

Training Data Collectors

Anytime more than one person is 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 assess their readiness to collect data before going into the field.
