What do these terms mean
Definitions for performance measurement terms may be helpful as you review the draft measures and indicators (PDF) above.There are three levels of information to think about for each of Gov. Inslee's goals.
- Goal topic: each goal is broken up into specific goal topics that organize how we define and measure progress on the larger goal.
- Outcome measure: each goal topic includes one or more outcome measures that identify the results we want to achieve over time.
- Leading indicators: the progress on each outcome measure is determined by a set of specific, detailed, quantifiable indicators. This is the data our state agencies regularly report to the Results Washington team.
