Measurement Tools & Indicators
This section of the Toolkit provides some specialized resources for M&E planning, data collection and measurement related to advocacy. The Advocacy Progress Planner, an interactive online tool by the Aspen Institute, assists users in producing a logic model (an explanation of how a given effort will bring about change and what results are anticipated). The Aspen Institute also has a website guide for M&E planning and implementation that may be used in conjunction with the interactive online tool. Those seeking data collection tools might usefully examine the handbook produced by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and Organizational Research Services, which provides a particularly large array of examples.Those interested indicators for their activities will find a wealth of possibilities in the online indicator database by the MEASURE Evaluation project.
