POMT Application

What is the POMT Application?

For teachers, administrators, policy makers, and evaluators, program monitoring can be an important method for ensuring that programs run smoothly. The POMT module helps you create an ongoing plan for monitoring, measuring, and tracking outcomes over time to evaluate program effectiveness.

Why use the POMT to monitor and measure outcomes of your education program?

Program monitoring can help gauge whether a program has been successful by:

  • establishing a detailed and transparent program with measurable outcomes;
  • developing clear indicators and measures;
  • providing a foundation for data collection and evaluation;
  • developing a common language for objective and factual discussion and assessment of progress toward goals.
