Assessing Success

Assessing the success of the event based on goals and objectives

Evaluating the success of a Makeathon is essential to making improvements for future events, and building on the good work you have already done.

KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) can be a useful tool for assessing the success of the Makeathon based on established goals and objectives. These should be measurable and achievable, and you should set modest goals first time out (eg: 4 working prototypes by student groups) so that you set yourself up for success.

Here are some steps you can follow to use KPIs to assess the success of the Makeathon:

  1. Define your goals and objectives: Establish clear and measurable goals and objectives for the Makeathon. These should be specific, realistic, and aligned with the overall mission and vision of the event.

  2. Identify relevant KPIs: Identify KPIs that are relevant to your goals and objectives. For example, if one of your goals is to increase participation, your KPIs might include the number of participants, the number of new participants, and the diversity of participants.

  3. Collect data: Collect data on the identified KPIs before, during, and after the Makeathon. This can be done through surveys, attendance records, social media metrics, or any other relevant data source.

  4. Analyse the data: Examine the results to determine how well the Makeathon performed based on the established goals and objectives. Compare the actual with the desired outcomes to identify areas of success and areas for improvement.

  5. Use the results to improve future events: Use the insights gained from the analysis to improve future Makeathons. Adjust your goals and objectives as needed, and identify new KPIs that will help you measure progress.

By using KPIs to assess the success of the Makeathon, you can gain valuable insights into the effectiveness of the event and make data-driven decisions to improve future events.
