Determine the indicator's value by using the following methodology:
1) Define a limited number (3 - 5) of the most important skills that people should have in order to contribute to strengthening their resilience.
2) Decide the minimum result a person needs to reach in order to pass a test (for example, being able to demonstrate at least 3 out of 4 essential skills correctly).
3) As a next step, prepare observation-based tests (including clear instructions for asking people to demonstrate the skills) that enable the data collectors to decide which of the desired skills the
survey participants have. Avoid having unrealistically high or unnecessarily low requirements by pre-testing the difficulty of the skills people are supposed to demonstrate with at least 10 randomly selected target group members.
4) Administer the test to a representative sample of your target group members by asking the participants to perform each of the tested skills and having the data collectors observe and record whether it was performed correctly.
5) Count the number of participants that reached the minimum required result.
6) To calculate the indicator’s value, divide the number of surveyed participants who have the minimum required skills by the total number of tested participants. Multiply the number by 100 to gain the “success rate” in percentages. For example, 150 participants who passed the test divided by 200 participants who took the test multiplied by 100 equals a 75% success rate.
For the last step, multiply this “success rate” by the total number of the target group members (e.g. 75% multiplied by 10,000 equals to 7,500 people who have the desired skills).
