Task 1: Establish the criteria that will be used to judge if a measure has performed well, or not

 

Key question 1: What will be considered as successful performance?

  • Discuss with key colleagues how you will judge whether the results identified are positive.
  • Define these criteria before the evaluation. Otherwise the interpretation of the results is likely to be too optimistic.

 

Examples:

Increase the number of students who enrol in upper secondary programmes.

Increase the share of students who enrol in upper secondary programmes by 10%.

Increase the share of students who enrol in upper secondary programmes up to 90%.
