'Introduction to Performance Measurement' is a two-hour Web-based Training course offered by NHI, the authoritative source in transportation training.
This course is one in a series of introductory courses that fall within the subject area of Transportation Performance Management. Transportation Performance Management is a strategic approach that uses system information to make investment and policy decisions to achieve national performance goals. Performance Management helps inform decisions on the use of available resources, strengthens our accountability, and allows us to better understand and communicate what works and what does not work.
Performance measures help us see if targets and goals are being reached and give us clear information to communicate with decision-makers and stakeholders. In addition, performance measures help ensure program alignment with investments and customer expectations.
The training provides an overview of performance measures. It covers FHWA's role in developing performance measures and the criteria for developing effective performance measures. It also discusses the importance of data in developing performance measures, tools available for collecting data, and considerations for data analysis. It also addresses how performance measurement information can be used.
