Determine the indicator's value by using the following methodology:
1) Define a limited number of the most important knowledge or/and skills that the gender champions should gain as a result of the provided support. Avoid having unrealistically high or unnecessarily low requirements by verifying the test’s difficulty by pre-testing it with several respondents.
2) Prepare simple tests assessing whether the targeted gender champions have the pre-defined, most important knowledge and/or skills.
3) Decide the minimum result a person needs to reach in order to pass the test (for example, answering correctly at least 7 out of 10 knowledge-related questions and performing correctly at least 3 out of 5 tested skills).
4) Administer the test to a representative sample of gender champions by using a combination of:
> a written test (in the case of literate persons) or interview where the data collector asks knowledge-related questions and records whether the respondent provided correct answers (in the case of largely illiterate persons)
> observations where the gender champions are asked to perform the tested skill and the data collector records whether it was performed correctly
5) Count the number of respondents that reached the minimum required result.
6) To calculate the indicator’s value, divide the number of gender champions who attained the minimum required knowledge/skills by the total number of tested gender champions and multiply the number by 100. For example, 160 people who passed the test divided by 200 people who took the test multiplied by 100 equals an 80% success rate.
As a next step, multiply this “success rate” by the total number of targeted gender champions (e.g., 80% multiplied by 500 equals to 400 gender champions who acquired the desired knowledge / skills).
