The “Outcomes Star”
May 15, 2018

Sometimes it can be difficult to measure what we typically call ‘soft’ outcomes – and the “Outcome Star” is one way in which this difficulty might be overcome.

The “Outcome Star” is a visual, graph or map in, as the name suggests,  the shape of a many-pointed star.

Each point of the star represents a different scale and these are used to measure the change when working with people. There are a number of different versions of the star depending on the people you are working with and what your project aims to achieve. There are numerous Stars you can develop to measure outcomes relevant to you. For example:

  • Community development
  • Worklessness
  • Progres towards the labour market
  • Youth work
  • Mental health
  • Wellbeing
  • Confidence

The following is just one example of an “Outcome Star”
