Evaluating impact

Evaluating impact

We are committed to monitoring and evaluating our progress towards two parts of our bold goal: increasing the number of children who are thriving in our partner communities, and contributing to changing the system for all communities to work collectively on early childhood development.

Monitoring and evaluation

We are taking four integrated perspectives into account as part of our approach to monitoring and evaluation. We are measuring; the positive change or impact on individual lives or populations; how well stakeholders are collaborating and learning together; how well human and financial resources are being leveraged and the influence our efforts have had on the broader system in terms of policy, business and service delivery practice.

We create new ways of measuring the impact of our work on the ground, allowing us to build alignment and track and compare progress in collective impact in Australia for the first time. We use that knowledge to adapt what we do for better results, demonstrate what works, and stop doing things that waste time and effort.

aqua-girlWe have developed a suite of five tools for monitoring and evaluation at the national and community levels:

Opportunity Child Shared Outcomes Framework – to build a national picture of how communities and initiatives are tracking against common indicators;

Collective Impact Quality Assessment Tool – to assess a collaborative initiative’s progress in building the attributes, capabilities and conditions required to do high quality collective impact work;

Opportunity Child Business Case Model – to highlight the costs and benefits associated with the initiative;

Opportunity Child Policy Change Monitoring Approach – a method for testing the influence of our collective effort on government policy, public perceptions, business practices and service delivery practices; and

Community Measurement Frameworks – this is one framework of the many that will emerge at the local level to form each community’s shared measurement system. This is a framework that measures the outcomes and risk and protective factors at the local community level.
