One of the first steps in analysing data is to construct a frequency distribution table. A frequency table provides collected data values arranged in ascending order of magnitude, along with their corresponding frequencies.

Vote counting is a simple but limited method for synthesizing evidence from multiple evaluations, which involves simply  comparing the number of positive studies (studies showing benefit) with the number of negative studies (studies showing harm). It does not take into account the quality of the studies, the size of the samples, or the size of the effect.

Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) is a technique used to compare the total costs of a programme/project with its benefits, using a common metric (most commonly monetary units). This enables the calculation of the net cost or benefit associated with the programme.

Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) is an option that can be used as a means of measuring outcome data from different contexts set out on a 5 point scale of -2 to +2. It enables the data to be placed on a quantitative measurement scale thus tackling the problem of how to adequately identify and measure qualitative goal impact and attainment. This is very useful as it enables a linking of measures from the frontline to upper levels of an organization’s management.

Logs, Journals and Diaries are monitoring tools for recording data over a long period of time. Because they rely on timely and accurate documentation of an on-going process, they must be completed close to the event and are not suitable as evaluation tools post-implementation, although a journal format can be used to reconstruct events after the fact.
