The Importance of Guiding Questions

Guiding questions are specific questions that help you obtain useful answers to important questions about HCBS topics you want to measure.

More specific questions help you target the information you need to obtain meaningful answers to these questions.

When creating guiding questions, you should consider:

  • What information about your topic you are seeking
  • If the information you collect will help you answer the question
  • How the information will be used
