Check Sheet

A Check Sheet is pretty much any form of organized manual data collection, although there are some specific variations (as in the 'see also' below).

One of the side-effects of using Check Sheets is that the person using it becomes very aware of the data they capture and can see the patterns of data building up in front of their eyes (although there is, of course, a danger of seeing patterns where there are none or where there is too little data to be significant).

Check Sheets are sometimes called Data Collection Sheets. They also get called Tally Charts, although as 'tally' means 'to count', these do not strictly include such as Checklists and Location Plots.
