Designing Data Collection for Program Evaluation, Policy, and Management
This half-semester course will include a qualitative and a quantitative component. We will begin with a discussion of using focus groups as a tool for data collection. We will spend the rest of the course talking about survey designs (including probability and non-probability sampling) and questionnaire development, as well as implementation issues. Students will produce a short focus-group proposal or survey questionnaire.
