Development of the Monitoring and Evaluation Tools for LCC Programs
The LCC Monitoring and Evaluation System is in the process of development. It is vital to the attainment of the LCC’s vision, mission and goals. We need it in order to be able to systematically monitor and evaluate the various initiatives of the Council which include the policies, programs and projects as well as various activities initiated and implemented by partner agencies and other stakeholders such as LGUs and to assess their impact on the goal of universalizing literacy in the country.
The development of the M&E system is being undertaken in three stages. The first stage comprised of preparatory activities: mostly meetings of the Technical Working Committee (eight of them held from March to October 2007) to lay the groundwork for the project.
The second stage was the development of the M&E system design which was undertaken in the first workshop held in Teachers Camp, Baguio on May 22-23, 2007. The workshop outputs were the LCC M&E system design, logical framework and list of data requirements.
The initial tasks in the stage 3 were achieved in the 2nd workshop held in SEAMEO-INNOTECH on October 18-19, 2007. The workshop developed the basic database of the National Literacy Information System (NLIS), identified M&E and MIS requirements such as data management, hardware and manpower and enhanced the LCC website.
The first M&E Workshop for the development of the M&E tools was on June 4-5, 2008 at the LCC Conference Room, the outputs of which are the Survey instruments for the Local LCCs and National Literacy Conference. This was followed by another workshop on June 24-25, 2010 with the output of programs and projects proposed plans. A follow up meeting was conducted on February 4, 2011 to flesh out the M&E tools for other programs and projects. The output of the meeting was a project profile format for the LCC programs and projects.
The LCC Technical Working Group and Secretariat had a workshop on the development of M&E tools for LCC programs and projects particularly on radio program and provincial orientation impact evaluation. The workshop was held on March 28-29, 2011 at SEAMEO INNOTECH, Comm0nwealth Avenue, Quezon City.
