Filed Under Articles The task of drawing up a data collection plan does not readily appeal to some people involved in any project, but in fact a data collection plan is absolutely vital in any project and specifically one which is seeking to effect improvement. The data collection plan will equip any project with quantifiable and measurable data so that the levels of current performance can accurately assessed and then any future improvements assessed and measured.

Introduction Data collection is a very important part of science. Meteorologists collect weather data over time to keep an historical record and to help make forecasts. While data have been collected by hand for thousands of years, the technology to collect data electronically has been around for fewer than 80 years.
Only in the last 20 years has this technology been available to schools.
This experiment was designed to introduce you to two of the most common modes of data collection that will be used in this class. Part I will guide you through collecting and analyzing data over time. This style of data collection allows you to collect one point of data, then will ask you to type in a corresponding value.
In this experiment, the data collected will be the temperature of your hand and the value you type in will be your assigned group number. Objectives In this experiment, you will Become familiar with the Logger Pro computer program.
Use a Temperature Probe to make measurements. Analyze a graph of the data. Use this graph to make conclusions about the experiment.
Determine the response time of a Temperature Probe.
What do I need for data collection?This training is intended for Continuum of Care (CoC) grantees and provides an introduction to the Annual Homelessness Assessment Report (AHAR) data collection and review processes.
This video introduces Data Collection. When you have information to collect from many sources, Data Collection streamlines your process and helps ensure the consistency and accuracy of the resulting data.
