An indicator that provides information (either qualitative or quantitative) on the extent to which a policy, program or initiative is achieving its outcomes.
A variable which indicates how effectively a machine, a system, a process or only part of either one operates. To obtain comparability the performance is measured against a given norm.
An agreed specification for measuring performance.
A characteristic of an output that can be measured. It can measure quantity as well as quality. By using a performance indicator and its associated standard, it is possible to determine if a process is producing a quality output. Performance Requirement: The point that divides acceptable and unacceptable performance of a task according to the Performance Requirements Summary (PRS) and the Inspection of Service Clause. It is the number of defectives or maximum defective in the lot that is deemed acceptable. Any further defectives will require the Government to effect the price computation system.
Performance indicators compare actual conditions with a specific set of reference conditions. They measure the 'distance(s) between the current environmental situation and the desired situation (target): 'distance to target' assessment.
a factor used to assess speed or responsiveness, quality, or cost of a process, input, output, or outcome
a number which can be calculated by a good statistician without any exercise of judgement and which is seen as a surrogate for a measurement of what one is actively interested in
a policy relevant statistic, number or qualitative description that provides a measure of whether the university, some aspect of it, or the university system is performing as it should
a statement against which achievement in an area of activity can be assessed
a statistic, number or qualitative description that indicates the extent to which the university system, an individual institution or some internal structure/ process is performing as it ought to
a way of measuring whether a standard is achieved
Specific programme targets which help monitor whether the programme is proceeding according to plan.
An indication as to how progress towards a target is to be measured. The performance indicators in this plan are either Best Value indicators set by the Government or Force indicators set locally.
A specific state, or variable, which can be monitored in a system e.g. a fishery to give a measure of the state of the system at any given time. In fisheries management, each performance indicator would be linked to one or more reference points and used to track the state of the fishery in relation to those reference points.
Allows an agency's performance to be assessed. Targets are set in May and reported against at the end of the next financial year.
A measure of economic, social or environmental health. In the context of the Study, performance indicators relate to impacts of different water levels in Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. ( indicateur de performance)
is a point of measure for tracking how and to what degree a project has achieved its intended resultsâ€“qualitative and quantitative. Quantitative indicators express indicators as a ratio, percentage, comparison, number. Qualitative indicators express indicators as a change or a comparison between two states or situations.
A specific qualitative or quantitative measure that allows performance against a benchmark to be assessed.
High-level numeric or qualitative measures that that will be used to monitor progress toward achieving the objective. These are generally metrics that a unit is already monitoring (e.g., time to completion, number of applications processed, customer satisfaction ratings, dollars raised, number of complaints, etc.). The metrics serve as indicators of how well the unit is meeting its objectives.
An indicator of the success of a government or corporate program. For example, a performance indicator for an anti-poverty aid program could be the number of people visiting medical clinics who are judged to be suffering from malnutrition.
(Also: performance measure) A criterion or measure for monitoring or evaluating the efficiency or effectiveness of a system or service, that may be used to demonstrate accountability and to identify areas for improvement.
(sometimes called a Process or Program indicator. Most commonly known as an "Output".) An indicator used to gauge effectiveness of an agency or program service delivery. For example, an indicator of how well an agency or program is providing a service to customers (e.g. citizens - police response time, staff turnover rate, percentage of customers served in their own language, percentage of clients off alcohol and drugs).
A performance indicator is a unit of information that measures or tracks an organization's success in achieving intended results. It is specifically worded to identify the characteristic or change that indicates a result has been achieved. A performance indicator identifies the statistic that will best summarize performance, usually a number, rate or percentage.
A measure that shows the degree to which a strategy has been achieved.
The well-articulated and measurable objectives of a particular project or policy. These may be detailed engineering Performance indicators, such as acceptable wave overtopping rates, rock stability, or conveyance capacity or more generic indicators such as public satisfaction.
is information about service performance or outcome achievement.
is information about output performance or outcome achievement, usually expressed as a unit, index or ratio.
A particular characteristic or dimension used to measure intended changes defined by an organizational unit's results framework. Performance indicators are used to observe progress and to measure actual results compared to expected results. The indicators are usually expressed in quantifiable terms, and should be objective and measurable (numeric values, percentages, scores and indices).
GPRA defines a performance indicator as a particular value or characteristic used to measure output or outcome.
PIs measure how you are doing in a given activity. You will often see the terms 'performance indicators' and 'performance measures' both used to describe 'how well a service is performing against its objectives', or 'the measure of a[n] authority's performance in exercising a function'. Examples include the number of invoices that a local council pays on time or the percentage of Council Tax it collects.
A method to measure the degree to which key objectives are achieved.
A measure of performance against a pre-set standard which helps to show whether an objective is being achieved.
Qualitative or quantitative information about results or outcomes associated with the organization that is comparable and demonstrates change over time.
Performance indicators provide a standard and manageable way of measuring performance.

A benchmark in accountability based budgeting by which the achievement of programs may be evaluated.
A variable that allows the verification of changes in the development intervention or shows results relative to what was planned. Related terms: performance monitoring, performance measurement. Source: OECD Glossary of Key Terms in Evaluation and Results Based Management
A performance indicator is a measurement designed by a reasoning process to determine whether or not a service objective has been met. It measures the effectiveness of achieving the objective or how well the objective has been accomplished.
A measure of whether an organisation is achieving its objectives. Performance indicators can be compared with a pre-set standard (a benchmark) or with other organisations.
A variable indicating the effectiveness and/or efficiency of a process.
