Monitor Data Collection

Depending on the size and scope of your evaluation, data collection may be a long process. During the data collection phase, it is important to monitor your data collectors and ensure that they are safe while in the field, and that the integrity of the data is not being compromised.

Create a space where your data collectors are encouraged and feel comfortable sharing their experiences with you.  Honor their responses and do what you can to improve the process and their success.
