ABSTRACT

This study utilizes performance information to assess the appropriateness of performance indicators. The analysis is based on the performance indicators listed in the K-PART (Program Assessment Rating Tool) report for 2012, which are used to establish four criteria and an appropriateness index. The results reveal that understanding of the criteria for constructing K-PART performance indicators differs significantly among agencies and this limits the usefulness of the K-PART. Moreover, there is a need for ambiguous performance goals to be more clearly connected with performance indicators. Finally, although the overall level of performance indicators has improved since they were first implemented, the timeliness of the indicators is very poor when compared with other criteria.
