Deploying advanced methods involves moving from descriptive or basic mathematical metrics (sums, averages, percentages, medians, etc.) to more sophisticated techniques (frequencies, ranking/percentiles, correlations, and/or regressions) that provide more meaningful analyses and reveal relationships or predictions between processes, programs, behaviors, and their outcomes.
At this stage, engaging a team member or outside expert with the appropriate statistical skills is necessary to identify the proper techniques to apply. Additionally, researching possible analytic techniques enhances knowledge of what can be accomplished and what questions to ask the partner. Together, the parties can discuss the data needed, determine its availability, and work to fill in any gaps.
