PESB uses key performance indicators as part of their indicator-based program review (IBPR). Every two years, PESB reviews, revises, and re-approves the program indicators. Every indicator includes three componenets:
- Measurement: the data used to calculate the indicator;
- Comparison: the reference point the programs’ data are compared to; and
- Threshold: how different the program’s data can be before the Board intervenes to improve performance.
