CIC explains that “indicators measure what the community cares about and track whether the community is moving in the right direction.” But indicator projects can find it challenging to measure what their audiences care about, whether the project is moving in the right direction, and how the project is making impact in the community.
This panel session will describe select findings and lessons from an external evaluation of three indicator projects that receive support from the Bush Foundation: Minnesota Compass (www.mncompass.org), North Dakota Compass (www.ndcompass.org), and South Dakota Dashboard (www.sddashboard.org).
Panelists from each indicator project will share strengths and areas for improvement that emerged from the evaluation and what they are doing with the information to move their projects forward and will reflect on what additional information they would like to have to demonstrate impact, maintain relevance, plan for improvements, and sustain support.
