Shared Measurement Initiative

Our Shared Measurement Initiative makes evaluation accessible to members


In December 2014, YDEKC launched a Shared Measurement Initiative with a cohort of member organizations who are committed to strengthening evaluation capacity in their organizations. The goals of this initiative are to:

  • Build member organizations’ capacity to evaluate programs within a “Quality-to-Outcomes” framework (shown below), and use data for continuous improvement
  • Help organizations leverage data for internal learning and external communication (including fundraising), while advancing knowledge of field-level impact
