Student Well-Being

Indicator Selection

One specific priority is to move toward more impact-focused monitoring and evaluation processes. This implies pre- and post-intervention assessments (baseline and end-line assessments), as well as the careful selection of indicators and data collection methods to provide insights about the apparent effectiveness of the project.

In the past, many education and youth and livelihoods projects have reported on only whether activities took place and, if so, how many students, teachers, materials, etc. were involved. In addition, the projects provided only anecdotal evidence of other results. We are trying to change this trend to enable us to collect and analyze data related to what our interventions appear to achieve.
