ACM On-line Benchmarking Calculator

As a subcontractor to the Association of Children's Museum the White Oak Institute is developing an on-line tool based on data from their survey of members to be used by ACM members. The Benchmarking Calculator allows museums to compare their operating data and key indicators against a selection of comparable museums. The Benchmarking Calculator will launch in the summer of 2012.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To conduct research and analysis in the museum field and disseminate findings in order to contribute to organizational sutainability for museums and a better understanding of the field.

Oucomes of the NSF funded DISCUSS Colloquium on developing standards and specifications for Giant Screen Digital theaters resulted in a first draft of specifications which were adopted by the Giant Screen Cinema Association with a GSCA committee formed to develop the next draft of the specifications. One of the outcomes of the IMLS funded Online Benchmard Calculator for the Association of Children's Museums was the launch in 2012 of the benchmarking tool. This will be updated annually to reflect member responses to the ACM member survey. Response to date has been extremely enthusiastic and an evaluation survey indicated significant improvement in a museum's ability to measure its performance against peer institutions after using the Benchmark Calculator. By November 1600 reports had been dowloaded since the tool launched in August 2012.
