How Data is Collected

Discussion of how data will be collected is an important part of the self-monitoring plan. In deciding on the best way to collect data, it is important to consider:

  • whether the exercise is intended to call for quantitative information, qualitative information or both.
  • and, more importantly, ask yourself if it allows you to “collect once, use many times”.

Consider the following when collecting data:

  1. Indicators and the collection of data
  2. Designing a data collection plan
  3. Quality criteria for data collection
