Though we are always told not to count our chickens before they are hatched, there are many advantages to counting during and after an observation. If you have already visited the course titled, “Identifying Types of Data,” you have learned that we can classify evidence you might collect during an observation into two categories: quantitative and qualitative data. In this course, you will recognize what can be considered to be quantitative evidence, why it is important, and when to collect it. Beyond this, we will provide you with strategies and suggestions for how to efficiently and effectively collect it during an observation. Remember, the quality of our feedback to teachers is directly correlated the quality of the data you collect during an observation.
