Get Hands-On With Outcomes: Introduction to Data Form Preparation & Data Cleaning Workshop
June 20 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Data Form Preparation? Data Cleaning? Do you know what any of this means? If not, join CNM Outcomes and Evaluation Consultants to get hands-on practice with data-entry forms and data cleaning.
Preparing to enter your data into an electronic format, like Excel, and then ensuring you are entering data consistently (i.e. always entering collected information the same way) are the first steps to gaining answers about your program. The data form which is the electronic format you will use to enter your data, must be created with the end use in mind. Once created and data entry begins, data must then be checked for missing data, incorrect entries, and other information to ensure accuracy. This workshop will cover the basics of data form preparation and cleaning. You will work one-on-one with a CNM Outcomes and Evaluation Consultant to discuss how to create/prepare forms for data entry, handle missing data, and ensure that the data is being entered in a way that can be easily analyzed.
You will be able to create new data entry forms, revise existing forms, and/or clean your own existing data during this workshop.
- Introduction to selecting an electronic data entry software/program, preparing data-entry forms, and cleaning data.
