Data Collection

We help researchers navigate the tools and systems for data collection available at UC Berkeley, particularly as it relates to REDCap - a secure data collection tool - at UC Berkeley.

Collection of both quantitative and qualitative data can occur in numerous ways, varying by discipline, methodology and research design. The method of data gathering – whether from instruments, sensors, or computer system logs; by survey, interview, observation, ethnography or audio/visual recording; or otherwise – affects the research questions asked, data analysis strategies, storage and computation considerations, and more.
