Test CH 2: Start with the Basics


Before starting your project, articulate what outcomes you wish to accomplish.

  • What do you want to study and what is the problem or question you are trying to resolve?
  • Do you want to reach a certain number of volunteers? Promote student learning? Outreach to a unique group?
  • What data will you collect? How will collecting this data help achieve your project goals? What is the appropriate grade of data quality needed for your project?
  • How will you display your results to clearly show the connection with your objectives?

Thinking through your objectives helps you achieve them in a targeted manner, which paves the way for better results.
