Researchers and evaluators are often asked to give quantitative measures on topics that do not easily lend themselves to such measurement. Collaboration is one such topic: it is acknowledged to be a critical success factor for all kinds of organizations, but research and evaluation often lags because of the difficulty of measurement. This tutorial will introduce a range of quantitative methods for evaluating collaboration, on three levels: group-level experiments, micro-level measures (individuals), and macro-level measures (organizations.) I will walk participants through the methods where I have the most experience, and also mention a number of other methods, some very new, which may become increasingly valuable.
