As you learned in previous modules, evaluation plans may include many different techniques, structures, and designs. Likewise, the methods you use for your program evaluation should be unique to your program goals, the needs of your stakeholders, and your scope of the work. It will be easier to choose the appropriate methods for your data collection efforts now that you have decided what information you will need and have an understanding of the different types of designs you can use to collect that information. This section will provide an overview of different types of data, various data sources, and data collection techniques. Also in this module you will find an overview of ways to integrate technology into your data collection efforts.
