We use WCOnline to schedule and gather assessment data for both The Writing Center and our peer tutoring program.  Unfortunately, I have to do the statistical work, which is not great considering am a lit person.  (In other words - I don't Math.)

We capture all the usual stuff (IDs, class standing, course number, prof, etc.), but we try to get a couple of other specs as well:

1.  First or Home Language - currently we don't have a dedicated ELL person, so I'm quietly using this info to help build my case for one.
2.  We ask for the point of referral (self, advisor, professor).
3.  We ask for the student's confidence level in the class.  It makes post-session assessment more meaningful for us.
4.  We ask for the student to identify 2 priorities for the session so that the tutor/writing consultant and guide the session agenda better.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the great questions Lynda.
 I am also interested in this information too.

 Does anyone have a method for collecting data from a Writing Center and a Math Center?  We have both types of centers and they function as a drop in tutoring service. Currently we collect only number of visits and the course for which students come to the centers.We have a new Dean, and he has asked for more direct measures, so I am curious as to the data other institutions collect from walk-in centers.
Feel free to contact me off list. [log in to unmask]
