Data Collection

 ¿What is Data Collection, why is it important?

Data collection is the process of recording information, using different methods, according to the type of service provided. By using data collection and analysis methods, it is easier for professionals to measure and report accurate and real data in order to make the right decisions in determining what will be the most effective way to modify or improve the quality of the services they provide.

There are several types of data collection. For example, in the case of some therapies such as ABA, an analyst will determine what kind of data to collect depending on the type of information he or she needs about the behavior or response being evaluated.
