Part I of the Data Management and Analysis: From Beginner to Advanced Online Training Series
This popular online training is an introduction to the remainder of the data management and analysis series. For people newer to the field of evaluation, or newer to the tasks of data management and analysis, this one-hour online training will teach the basic skills and tools needed to manage and analyze program data, with a special emphasis on analyzing program outcome data. Participants do not need any special skills; no special software or math skills needed!
You will learn about: organizing data into a spreadsheet format, how to perform basic quality assurance with your data, simple mathematical functions for data analysis (frequencies, median, mode, mean and basic comparisons), how to create new evaluation questions out of your data, and how to interpret data including attention to the context of the data. This will include some information on how the common software, Microsoft Excel, can be used for these tasks. The online training will be accompanied by a written Information Sheet.
