Key question 1: How will patterns in the data be identified? This concerns both qualitative and quantitative data.
- Decide which data analysis techniques are most suitable given the evaluation questions.
Key question 2: How will the data be presented?
- In most cases you will use descriptive statistics for quantitative data and content analysis for qualitative data. The complexity of the analysis depends on the questions to be answered, the indicators to be used but also the breadth and depth of the data.
Examples: See examples of evaluation reports:
- Evaluation of the Danish initiative Retention Caravan (in Danish).
- Evaluation of the Austrian Production Schools (in German).
- Evaluation of the Irish initiative Youthreach (in English).
- Evaluation of the ‘Guidance and professional initiation courses’ and ‘Professional initiation courses to diverse professions’, implemented in Luxembourg (in French).
