Core Indicators for Monitoring and Evaluation Studies in ICTs for Education

We begin the chapter with a discussion of general issues related to the monitoring and evaluation as well as the selection and use of indicators. We then review various indicators that have been used in a variety of settings in various countries.

Excerpted from the infoDev publication, Monitoring and Evaluation of ICT in Education Projects: A Handbook for Developing Countries.

Executive Summary

  • The choice of core indicators in ICT4E is the key to determining the impact of technology on student and teacher knowledge, skills and attitudes.
  • In order to understand the outputs of any program, inputs must also be measured, such as ICT resources, teacher training, pedagogical practices, and the educational, technological, and social context.
  • Outputs should be measured against these same variables as well as costs.
  • Data should be collected throughout the program’s implementation, and in suffi cient breadth and depth such that conclusions have credibility with the consumer of the study.
