Using Google Docs to Collect and Analyze Data

Although student information systems house immense amounts of data, school counselors sometimes need data not traditionally collected by these systems (e.g., social/emotional or career data). Discover how to collect this data most effectively and efficiently using technology. Specifically, learn how to use Google Docs (free with a registered account) to do just this. Google Docs allows for free and unlimited data collection and can even provide a quick summary of your results. From homework completion rates, to event RSVP’s, to cyberbullying surveys, hear how to do it.
