Category: 
Logic Model Component: 
Data Type(s): 
Count
Short Definition: 

Refers to the number of sessions or activities focused on reflection and analysis of monitoring data from a project, program, or initiative to inform performance and adjustments

Definition and Explanation (Long): 

This indicator refers to the number of sessions or activities focused on reflection and analysis of monitoring data from a project, program, or initiative to inform performance and adjustments. This may include modifying results reviews, data-quality assessments, or other monitoring and evaluating activities implemented for accountability and to inform decision making to include more learning and reflection.

Data Requirements: 

Quantitative data from administrative records or reports that provide the number of sessions or activities implemented with a focus on reflection and analysis of monitoring data

Data Sources: 

Administrative records and reports

Frequency of Data Collection: 
Quarterly, semiannually, or after specific activities
Purpose: 
This indicator reports on the implementation of planned adaptive practices identified to be used in the project, program, or initiative that specifically used routine or other monitoring data collected by the project, program, or initiative.
Issues and Challenges: 
Although a project, program, or initiative has conducted adaptive management approaches, and followed through on their identified work plan activities, it does not necessarily mean that the sessions were of high quality or contributed to programmatic improvements. Quality can be assessed through user satisfaction surveys (see indicators 24 to 28); actions taken to make programmatic improvements can be assessed in an internal assessment.
