Testing the Accessibility of Arts Council England’s Quality and Participatory Metrics

Shared Intelligence, The Mighty Creatives, and Sarah Pickthall

Arts Council England’s system of Quality and Participatory Metrics is a new tool designed to gather opinion data from audiences and participants in arts experiences. Each ‘metric’ consists of a dimension, the specific aspect of a production that is being measured, and a statement which is presented to respondents who are asked the extent they agree or disagree. Each metric statement has been designed to test a particular aspect or dimension of ‘quality’.

The authors have assumed that readers of this report will already be familiar with the Quality and Participatory Metrics and have omitted lengthy explanations about the wider aims of the metrics, or the background to their development.
