Qualitative and Quantitative Methods in Evaluation

This course introduces students to approaches to data collection and analysis. The qualitative methods sessions cover qualitative research methods; mining others’ research to prepare literature reviews; and developing data gathering tools such as surveys, interviews, focus groups and observations. Students use case studies and other qualitative results reports to develop their critical analysis of the validity and reliability of evidence and findings. In the section on quantitative methods, students learn about quantitative research designs and their applications in evaluation, explore sampling, methods, and learn to develop quantitative measurement tools. They design simple surveys, and analyze varied types of quantitative instruments. Students will analyze quantitative studies to understand implications of findings for effectiveness and sustainability. Students will also analyze secondary data sets to understand the basics of statistical relationships and modeling.
