Overview – Scott McKeown    

Beginning with an operational definition of Outcome Monitoring, this session will present the historical context for MEASURE Evaluation’s work in this area before proceeding to a discussion of the Outcome Monitoring priorities under Phase III. Several examples of MEASURE Evaluation field work activities in Outcome Monitoring under Phase III are given. This introductory serves as a lead in to a more detailed exploration of two examples of Outcome Monitoring under MEASURE Evaluation:  1) the use of Lot Quality Assurance Sampling (LQAS) in Kenya and Liberia, and 2) the development of standardized indicators and measurement tools for assessing OVC outcomes in terms of child and household well-being.
