Data Collection and LCAP Support


What if your program does not need a comprehensive evaluation? EADC provides an array of à la carte services to our educational partners to support with developing and implementing surveys, focus groups and stakeholder interviews, and any other quantitative and qualitative data collection methods needed.

Quantitative data are data gathered that can be counted or summarized numerically. Quantitative data may come from surveys, student information systems, federal or state databases, and many other sources, and can be visualized using charts and graphs.

Qualitative data is often used by programs to “tell the story behind the numbers," or​ to provide context to quantitative data results. We can also utilize qualitative data to explore new or unknown concepts to identify what and how we may want to measure program impacts.  Qualitative data methods include focus groups, interviews, observations, journals, photo essays, and other more creative data collection methods.

Types of projects we support: 

  • Stakeholder feedback for District Local Control Accountability Plans (LCAPs)

  • Needs Assessments 

  • Data collection for program continuous improvement work
