Determine the indicator's value by using the following methodology:
1) Define a limited number of the most important knowledge or/and skills that the project participants should gain as a result of the provided support. Avoid having unrealistically high or unnecessarily low requirements by verifying the test’s difficulty by pre-testing it with at least 10 people.
2) Prepare simple tests assessing whether the targeted project participants have the pre-defined, most important knowledge and/or skills. The testing can consist of, for example:
> in the case of literate persons, a written test, and in the case of nonliterate persons, an interview where the data collector asks knowledge-related questions and records whether the participant provided correct answers (in the case of largely nonliterate persons)
> observations where the participants are asked to perform the tested skills and the data collector records whether they were performed correctly
3) Decide the minimum result a person needs to reach in order to pass the test (for example, answering at least 7 out of 10 knowledge-related questions correctly and performing at least 3 out of 5 tested skills correctly).
4) Administer the test to a representative sample of your target group members.
5) Calculate how many participants reached the minimum required result.
6) To calculate the indicator’s value, divide the number of participants who have the minimum required knowledge/skills by the total number of tested participants. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
