Methodologies used to identify information sources and collect information during an evaluation.[1] Examples of data collection tools include mail, telephone, in-person and web-based surveys, direct or participatory observation, interviews, focus groups, expert opinion, case studies, literature search, and content analysis of internal and external records. The data collection tools must be strong enough to support the findings of the evaluation.[2]
