Our monitoring and evaluation framework
Data collection & tracking
Collecting relevant data from the communities in which 40K implements its programs is an important element of our approach to strengthening inclusion, as it allows us to then track our progress, and the progress of participating schools and students.
Our data collection and tracking methods include:
- Data from a Human Centred Design based market study, disaggregated by gender, age, existence/type of disability, as well as other social indicators relevant to the work we do (eg. Parents’ annual income and profession).
- Data collected from schools, as reported by the school directors.
- Data from our learning app and learning management system (LMS), cross-referenced against variables such as grade and gender.
- Teacher self-reported data on student participation and performance, cross-referenced against the data from the LMS.
- Periodic discussions with community representatives and parents, focusing on accessibility, affordability and usefulness of the 40K program.
To evaluate the efficacy of our work, we measure the data collected through the above methods against our stated organisational objectives.
In 2021, these objectives include:
- Children enrolled on PLUS English are able to continue to learn without disruption whenever the academic year is in progress
- Children are improving their English skills and achieving grade level targets
- Students value the PLUS English program and are engaging with it
- Teachers value the PLUS English program and are advocating its usage in their classroom
- 40K products address the needs of the communities to the extent possible
- As an organisation, we are able to increase the impact of the PLUS English program
