Data rehearsal

Data rehearsal, a technique developed by Michael Patton,  involves developing simulated reports of data before data collection, and then workshopping these with primary intended users to see if this will meet their information needs.  It can be helpful to present a range of scenarios using hypothetical data – for example, what the data might look like if it was working well, not working, or had mixed results.  Data rehearsal can help improve decisions about what data to collect, how to collect it, and how to analyse and report it.
