Instructions For Use

  1.  The "Evaluation Matrix" tool will help you consider the most appropriate and feasible data collection method for each of the questions identified in your evaluation plan.

  2. List your evaluation questions on the vertical side of the matrix.
  3. List the feasible data collection methods on the horizontal side of the matrix.
  4. Consider each question carefully and choose the most appropriate data collection method.
