  1. 1. Quantitative Monitoring of Qualitative Data: <br />Empowering Communities and Informing Programmes<br />Dr. Christine Sijbesma, IRC<br />
  2. 2. 2<br />Session A3C Assessing Hygiene Behaviour Change<br />
  3. 3. 3<br />Session A3C Assessing Hygiene Behaviour Change<br />
  4. 4. 4<br />Session A3C Assessing Hygiene Behaviour Change<br />
  5. 5. Processdifference?<br />
  6. 6. Social Questionnaire Survey most common to get quantitative and qualitative data, but:<br />extractive and communities do not get insight in and learn from results<br />Session A3C Assessing Hygiene Behaviour Change<br />
  7. 7. Participatory because<br /><ul><li>C’ties and local workers have right to know
  8. 8. Management of change at all levels
  9. 9. No external consultants needed after training</li></ul>Quantified because:<br /><ul><li>Numbers easier to manage at scale
  10. 10. Higher levels management can aggregate </li></ul> data, compare performances, target degree <br /> of support, encourage inter-c’ty learning <br /><ul><li>All levels can use simple excel sheet</li></ul> 6<br />Session A3C Assessing Hygiene Behaviour Change<br />
  11. 11. How can it be done? <br />Use quantitative Participatory Learning and Action (PLA)* tools to get local statistics (numbers)<br />Quantify qualitative data through scoring on scenario scales<br />* Also called PRA : <br /> Participatory Rapid Assessment <br />Session A3C Assessing Hygiene Behaviour Change<br />
  12. 12. Use of quantitative PLA data: <br />
  13. 13. Quantify thru scores on scenario scales (scale SSH4A project supply chain development)<br />
  14. 14. Process followed in SSH4A project:<br /><ul><li>In workshop with country managers review generic indicators for civic fund projects
  15. 15. Add other performance parameters specific for SSH4A project – strengthen demand, strengthen supply, improve key practices, enhance local governance of improving S&H
  16. 16. Select objectively measurable indicators (incl. by proxy) to assess performance
  17. 17. Design, then peer review scales </li></ul>Session A3C Assessing Hygiene Behaviour Change<br />
  18. 18. Another example of a SSH4A project scale:<br />Session A3C Assessing Hygiene Behaviour Change<br />
  19. 19. Peer review of the previous scoring scale <br />From SSH4A project: latrine scored as 0 (not used as toilet, but to pocket the subsidy) <br />
  20. 20. Resulted in agreed procedure / scales in a Performance Monitoring Instruction >><br />Assessment at three moments: at start (baseline), mid-way and at end of allocated project period<br />Methods: mix of participatory assessment and survey (depends on country/ province/ district)<br />Session A3C Assessing Hygiene Behaviour Change<br />
