Analyzing Quantitative Data
Ellen Taylor-Powell
This resource discusses various types of descriptive statistics that can be used to make evaluation data more understandable. These statistics include numerical counts or frequencies, percentages, measures of central tendency (mean, mode, and median), and measures of variability (range, standard deviation, and variance). The guide offers specific examples of each of these descriptive statistics and explains how to calculate them. It also shows how to rank and work with the data to allow evaluators to explore their findings further. (11 pages)
