Evaluation indicators for transitional ITOs

Outcome Indicators

Outcome indicators include longer-term economic and cognitive benefits to trainees, industry and the wider community.

The outcomes themselves may only become apparent after a significant period of time. More immediate outcomes are often easier to measure or observe and may be used as indicators of the likelihood of the longer-term outcomes being achieved. Examples include those related to the knowledge, skills and cognitive abilities of trainees.

Hence, outcome indicators describe what has already happened or been achieved. For this reason it is important that outcomes are considered alongside the key contributing processes and related contextual influences. Outcome indicators supply data essential for the overall evaluation and must be observable or measurable, either qualitatively or quantitatively.
