The R&I department is supporting or leading on a wide range of evaluation projects at any one time. The involvement of the team varies from project to project: we manage whole projects but also provide advice and support for each separate component of the process. This can include:

Background research (e.g. literature review)

Defining requirements and identifying potential outcomes

Identifying existing or developing specific instruments (e.g. standardised scales, questionnaires, interview schedules,)

Data collection (e.g. interviews, focus groups, surveys, performance indicators…)

Selecting and designing appropriate format for data storage and retrieval (e.g. Excel, SPSS, NVivo databases)

Data presentation and analysis (both quantitative and qualitative)

Report writing and dissemination
