You may decide that a scannable form is not appropriate for your intended audience or program. Or perhaps you were unable to find a scan form that meets your needs. Whatever the reason, there are several options available to you for evaluations NOT using scan forms.
By not using scan forms, all parts of the evaluation are done by YOU. You have total freedom to design and implement the evaluation to best meet your needs:
- Develop an evaluation strategy and questionnaire (or other data collection strategy).
- Once data are collected, you enter and analyze your own data using EZAnalyze in Excel (suggested resource), SPSS, or SAS.
Examples of evaluations not using scan forms can include creating your own paper survey, or administering a web survey using Instant Survey.
