Draft Design Tool
Area of Concern:
Source of Data:
Plan Issues to Consider
What specific data elements or variables will be needed?
From whom will the data be collected? Total population? Random sample?
Stratified? Geographic? Convenient?
Existing data sources? New data sources? If database query, who will develop and
validate new instruments? If making a database query, what fields will be needed?
Is there a protocol for requesting data? If data are in hard copy at the school

In what forms are you collecting the data? Counts, percents,or qualitative data?
How will you disaggregate the data? Priority for service, grade level, ELP, etc.
How will you analyze the data? Comparing counts, means, medians, content
