English term or phrase: "input-output-outcome-impact" typology
What do we mean by "Results"?
There is a potential for confusion over what is meant by a "result". In the Commission's "input-output-outcome-impact" typology, it would correspond to an "outcome", such as primary school enrolment. The amount spent on primary education would be classified as an "input"; the number of primary teachers trained would be an "output", and literacy rates would be an "impact". It is for this reason that the terms "results" and "outcomes" should be treated as synonymous. In this text you will find the reference "results/outcomes" frequently used.
