Having learnt how different factors can impact on performance within numerous different activities, it is time to assess your levels of performance in each of these factors. This occurs in a process referred to as either data collection or data gathering and is the first step on the Cycle of Analysis which lies at the heart of our course.
Read through the pages below to improve and consolidate your knowledge within this process.
