Use of Data

Collecting and Using Data

An important component of quality afterschool programming is the collection and use of data. It is important for programs to define what it is they want to know from the data they are collecting to help define the specific data points to collect. Just as it is important to know what data you want to collect, it is critical to also know how that data will be used.
