Exporting the list of indicators to a Microsoft Word document

Instead of showing your indicators in a logical framework, often you'll want to present them in the form of a list or a questionnaire. To create such a list, click on File → Export → Export to MS Word → Export list of indicators. The Export to Word dialog will have an additional tab, where you can select a number of options:

First of all, you can select which indicators you want to include in your list or questionnaire:

  • Goal indicators
  • Purpose indicators
  • Output indicators
  • Activity indicators (if you've defined any)
  • All indicators of your logframe

Generally you'll want to use the output indicators to monitor the results of your project.

Underneath you can see a series of check boxes. These allow you to specify what information you want to include. The first two options allow you to choose whether you want to show the purpose(s) and outputs to which the indicators belong. This is handy if you want to have a clear overview, but if you want to use the list as a questionnaire, you may want to un-check these options. Otherwise the respondents will know why you ask a certain question and that may influence their answer.

If you want to have a detailed overview of your indicators, including for each indicator the possible answers (responses), value ranges and targets, you should check the last three options. But again, if you want to create a questionnaire that you'll hand out to the respondents, then you may want to un-check these options. Otherwise they'll see what the 'right' answers are. For an interviewer, it is important to know what the value ranges are, but again you may want to hide the targets so that he or she can't accidentally give away the right answer.

Once you've selected the options that you want, you can press the < Ok > button. Logframer will start up Microsoft Word and create a new document that looks something like this:
