Collecting Data

The process of collecting accurate observations or measurements in order to find answers to research questions and assess trends, probabilities and outcomes is known as collecting data. Data can be collected in various ways, such as through surveys or questionnaires as well as through observation. Often, collected data is organized and stored in spreadsheets and other structured formats for analysis later on.

You’ll need a system that will ensure the data is collected in a consistent manner and accurately. Forms are the best tool to standardize and regulate the manner in which data is collected by researchers or participants. A reliable mobile form solution like Magpi can help you create questionnaires or surveys that are simple, easy-to-use and flexible, offering your participants the possibility to add text for free or radio buttons, checkboxes images, barcodes signatures and other forms of input.

It’s now time to implement your primary methods for data collection. It will depend on the type(s) of data you’re collecting, however, it could involve executing a survey, interview or observation, and recording or watching the results. In most instances, you’ll need to plan out how the data will be analyzed after it’s collected. This is important because it ensures that the information you’ve gathered will respond to your research issue.
