,” we demonstrated how to:
Align work plans with the National Performance M
outputs and outcomes; and
Calculate the total number of unduplicated volunteers for each work plan.The purpose of this optional activity is to
practice and apply how to align Work Plans withthe National Performance Measure outputs and outcomes, calculate the total number of unduplicated volunteers, and uncover any questions or challenges
you may have.We will convene a live session titled, Work Plan Alignment and Volunteer Placement Follow Upon August 6, 2013 from 1:45 p.m.
2:30 p.m. EDT to walk through the answers to this activityand provide you with an opportunity to ask questions and make comments directly to a CNCSstaff member.
Background: The National Performance Measures
You’ve probably asked yourself:
How much service did my project perform?
What impact did our service make on beneficiaries?
Do we have to use common terms, definitions, and approaches?
How does CNCS use this data?
Performance measurement can answer those questions.
Performance measurement is the ongoing, systematic process of tracking your program
 outputs and outcomes. The National Performance Measures can help you to gauge your 
organization’s progress and
provide the data for a strong agency-wide narrative to tell theNational Service story. This way, we can better demonstrate the powerful impact of NationalService.
Step 1: Review the Requirements
Which of the National Performance Measures apply to myorganization?
For Senior Companion Program grantees:
90% of unduplicated volunteers
must be placed in Work Plans that result in Agency-Wide Priority Measures (Independent Living Output-Outcome) or ComplementaryProgram measures (Respite Care Output-Outcome) within the Healthy Futures Focus Area.Up to
10% of those volunteers
may volunteer in Work Plans that report Other Outputmeasures.Now, take a look at the National Performance Measures for SCP in the table below. This tablewill serve as a key guide throughout the remainder of this exercise as you align Work Plans withthese key measures.
