Assignment: Qualitative Methods
This module taught you that although much of the data collected in a program evaluation and performance measurement will be quantitative, it is very important that we do not overlook the value of qualitative data within this process.
In a minimum of 200 words, respond to the following:
• What are the key characteristics of qualitative evaluation methods?
• What are the benefits of including qualitative data in the evaluation process?
• Do you believe that an evaluator can deliver and complete a valid evaluation of a program or an agency without including qualitative data? Why or why not?
