Beginning with the end in mind is one way to ensure outcome driven data collection and measurement. Measuring intended outcomes should initiate and drive data collection.
The Technical Assistance Center for Program Evaluation and Quality Assurance (PEQA) provides access to information and resources focused on data collection including: accuracy and consistency of data collection; data and information management; data measures, tools, and processes; and more.
In our Communities of Practice we can explore how to strike a balance between data collection and management while focusing on consumer services quality and efficiency.
