Indicator Elaboration Worksheet

An indicator elaboration worksheet has three main functions.

  1. Filling out the sheet helps planners to define properly the indicator and relate it to relevant development hypotheses or the theory of change underpinning the project.
  2. The precise description reveals the specific information that is required and the means for collecting and processing it. This allows the feasibility of using the indicator to be determined in terms of time, money and expertise required.
  3. Other people can understand the indicator and use it in other settings and at other times in ways that allow the readings to be comparable.

The attached file is such a worksheet. Comments and suggestions welcome.
