Criteria for Selection of High-Performing Indicators: A Checklist to Inform Monitoring and Evaluation

Description

The checklist includes practice-based criteria to be considered in the selection of indicators for use in monitoring and evaluation. The selection of indicators can be a complex, time-consuming task. In some cases, this process is not made explicit for stakeholders. Moreover, those expected to participate in this work come to the discussion with varying levels of knowledge relevant to monitoring and evaluation. Therefore, how do we assess the quality of indicators proposed for use? And, how do we encourage full participation of stakeholders in this dialogue? The purpose of the checklist is three-fold: (1) aid in establishing a process and shared vocabulary for dialogue with stakeholders regarding the selection of indicators; (2) reinforce the necessary connection of indicators to the evaluation questions to be addressed by the study; and (3) contribute to design of data collection activities more clearly linked to intended uses of findings.
