#### Monitoring and Evaluation 1 Input Calculator

Introduction
This tool tracks monitoring and evaluation indicators for input uris. Up to 20 new M and E indicators can be added for each input. Indicator labels are used to identify the same indicator in different calculators (use WBSs for the labels).

Calculation View Description
Sample data used in a M and E tutorial. v171a

Version: 0.9.8

Method 1. Do you wish to save step 2's calculations? These calculations are viewed by opening this particular calculator addin.

#### Step 1

• Step 1. Indicators: Up to 10 indicators can be entered in this step and up to 10 indicators can be included in the next step.
• Step 1. Indicator Name and Description: Name and description for each indicator.
• Step 1. Indicator Label: Labels are used to group together benchmark, target and actual indicators. DevTreks recommends using a WBS to classify the indicators.
• Step 1. Target Type: The Benchmark option is used to define a baseline, or benchmark, indicator. The Actual option is used to define the actual results for an indicator. The Full Target and Partial Target options are used to carry out progress and goal-related analyses.
• Step 1. Indicator Alternative: This property is used to compare up to five indicators. Refer to the M and E Analysis references.
• Step 1. Indicator Date: Make sure that the benchmark, targets, actual, indicators have distinct dates.
• Step 1. Indicator Type: If the indicator is a benefit or cost (i.e. substitute inputs), enter the price type. Additional options include demographic, natural resource, and socioeconomic indicator types.
• Step 1. Indicator Weight: A multiplier used in weighted milestone calculations. The Total will be multiplied by this value. Use the description to explain further.
• Step 1. Quantity 1 and 2: Fill in an amount and unit for at least Quantity 1. Fill in Quantity 2 when two quantities are needed to derive a total for the indicator. For example, a substitute input would derive a total cost by including a price for Quantity 1, a quantity for Quantity 2, and a Math Type of Q1_multiply_Q2. A rate can be derived by filling in both Quantities and then specifying Q1_divide_Q2. Use the description field to further explain.
• Step 1. Indicator Total and Unit: The Unit must be manually entered. The Total will be calculated from the Q1Amount, MathType, and Q2Amount properties. For example, a substitute input would derive a total cost by including a price for Quantity 1, a quantity for Quantity 2, and a Math Type of Q1_multiply_Q2.

#### Step 2

• Step 2. Use Same Calculator Pack In Descendants?: True to insert or update this same calculator in children.
• Step 2. Overwrite Descendants?: True to insert or update all of the attributes of this same calculator in all children. False only updates children attributes that are controlled by the developer of this calculator (i.e. version, stylehsheet name, relatedcalculatorstype ...)
• Step 2. What If Tag Name: Instructional videos explaining the use of what-if scenario calculations should be viewed before changing or using this parameter.
• Step 2. Related Calculators Type: When the Use Same Calculator Pack in Descendant is true, uses this value to determine which descendant calculator to update. Inserts a new descendant when no descendant has this same name. Updates the descendant that has this same name.
• Step 2. Indicators: Up to 10 indicators can be included in this step.
