In my understanding, quantitative variables can be used as both dependent and independent variables if the models are correctly specified. The term “quantitative variable” is not popular because people understand it differently. Someone thinks it refers to the continuous variable. Others may think that as long as the measurement can be quantified, it is a quantitative variable, such as an ordinal variable. Regression models are suitable for continuous variables. But we should apply different techniques when using ordinal variables as a dependent variable (logit model) or an independent variable (creating dummies).

Thanks to the MEL courses and everyone’s sharing, I’ve learned so much about program evaluation! One puzzling question for me is that as there are so many different models for evaluation, how could the evaluators decide to choose? Hence, may I ask what factors should be taken into consideration when I plan a program evaluation?

Hello. Some of my colleagues suggest that we could use the theory-based model in our program evaluation. But I don’t know this model very much. Could anyone kindly give me a clue about the strengths and weaknesses of this model?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
