Success Indicators

Developing a shared measurement system is essential to collective impact.  Collecting data and measuring results consistently on a short list of indicators at the community level and across all participating organizations ensures that efforts remain aligned.   Shared measurement in the context of collective impact is “use of a common set of measures to monitor performance, track progress towards outcomes and learn what is and is not working in the group’s collective approach” (John Kania, FSG).

Building off the research provided by StriveTogether and informed by our local collaboratives, North State Together identified key “cradle to career” benchmarks that frame the efforts in each county and provide guideposts for our region as a whole.

Key success indicators will include:

  • Kindergarten Readiness
  • Early Grade Reading
  • Middle Grade Math
  • High School Graduation and College Readiness
  • Post-Secondary Enrollment
  • Post-Secondary Completion

In addition, each county will set individual “contextual indicators” that align with the visions of each county and community collaboration. Examples may include health indicators, economic indications and/or community goals.

The broad indicators will be shared across the region and data about each will be provided to each county. However, each community will set their own benchmarks. And, each county will create their own action plans for addressing the priority area that most resonates with their needs and goals.
