Narrative evaluation A desk work approach to identifying themes including how frequently they recur, by analysing written material.

You may gather qualitative written feedback through forms, interviews, visitor comments, embedded evaluations and so on. There are ways to collate this data and include it as evidence in your evaluation and learning processes.
