• • Data collection and analysis are conducted simultaneously. • Data analysis is an on-going process that begins • Research design and methods are determined prior to the start of data collection and are not flexible. Quantitative data collection. • Instrument used (e.g. questionnaires, checklists)...
• Data Collection Tools 4. Questionnaire pilot testing • The major challenge in questionnaire design is to make it clear to all respondents. • In-order to identify and solve the confusing points, we need to pre-test the questionnaire. • During the pilot trial: the questionnaire participants should be randomly selected from the study population.
• MethodSpace is a multidimensional online network for the community of researchers, from students to professors, engaged in research methods. Sponsored by SAGE Publishing, a leading publisher of books and journals in research methods, the site is created for students and researchers to network and share research, resources and debates.
• Furthermore, the “raw” (unanalyzed) data might take several different forms—completed paper-and-pencil questionnaires, computer files filled with numbers or text, videos, or written notes—and these may have to be organized, coded, or combined in some way.
• Analysis of variance (ANOVA) can determine whether the means of three or more groups are different. ANOVA uses F-tests to statistically test the equality of means. The F-statistic is simply a ratio of two variances. Variances are a measure of dispersion, or how far the data are scattered from the mean.
• Data processing tools for editing and processing data are customized by survey teams to reflect the customization that other survey tools have undergone – such as the questionnaires. Much of this work is carried out during the MICS data processing workshop. Data from completed questionnaires are regularly shared with the centralised office.

Data collection techniques These are the tools and approaches used to collect data to answer the research question /hypothesis. More than one technique can be employed, the commonest are questionnaires and interviews. Approaches to qualitative and quantitative data analysis questionnaire to collect data for his study during two different phases, i.e. before and after the implementation of web 2.0 tools with learners. This approach made Thematic Analysis fit in this type of data collection. Thematic analysis is association with the data that was gathered in this research.

Nevertheless, clinicians have kept using these questionnaires to their satisfaction. This investigation therefore aims to evaluate both positions and addresses the similarities and differences between the two data collection methods. The ultimate objective is to formulate a guideline when to use which type of item format. Looks for categories such as events, descriptions, comments, behaviour. An inductive process - developing theories from the data you have gathered. Coding of categories and sub-categories identified. Compares codes, looking for consistencies, differences, patterns etc. Looks for new and emerging categories.
