Data can be captured directly online via a mobile app or through a web browser. In areas where internet connections are intermittent, data can be captured on a spreadsheet and uploaded when an internet connection is available.
The quality of the data being evaluated is managed through two avenues. Firstly, data validations can be put in place on fields and indicators. Mandatory fields can be specified, acceptable formats can be defined and distinct lists of possible values can be itemised. Secondly, detailed reports can be downloaded so that project staff can review the captured data at a granular level and ensure it is correct before it is used in evaluation processes.
