Pace and Performance Measures

SIM Accountability Metrics Summary: 66 measures across 14 secondary drivers

CT SIM used both pace and performance measures. Pace measures helped to determine whether program activities were being implemented as intended, reached the appropriate recipients, and resulted in specific outputs. They also helped to identify strategies that contributed to performance. Performance measures assessed the degree to which a program produced the intended changes in the appropriate recipients.  A summary table below includes the activities measured. More details can be found by clicking on each of the primary driver descriptions.
