English: # and % of survivors who show improved self-efficacy scores after receiving support from the project
What is its purpose?
This indicator measures if survivors improve their self-efficacy scores after receiving support from the project. Self-Efficacy is a useful proxy indicator for self-confidence and resilience; high levels of self-efficacy often predict success in achieving goals. Self-Efficacy is also fairly easy to measure (see some recommended tools attached below).
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
- Numerator: Number of survivors surveyed who improved their self-efficacy test scores [after a specified time period].
- Denominator: Total number of survivors surveyed.
Percentage = (Numerator/ Denominator) × 100
- Prior to the project’s support, conduct a self-efficacy test with survivors. Use one of the suggested tools below, if applicable.
- Record the score of each individual.
- At the end of the project support, conduct the same self-efficacy test.
- Compare the score before and after the project’s support.
- Count the number of those who have improved their self-efficacy score and calculate this number to a percentage.
- Age Group
- Type of Services Received
Note: You can choose any number of ways to disaggregate data if useful for your project, for example GESI-related disaggregation (disability, ethnicity, etc.).
