• To ”measure” acquired knowledge or skills throughout a project


  • Paper in A3 format
  • Post-it notes
  • Glue/Tape/Pins


  • On the paper, draw as many thermometers, which will represent the participant’s knowledge on a specific topic related to the project, as you would like.
  • To distinguish them, each thermometer will have a different color.
  • Participants will write their names on several post-it notes of the same color as thermometers.
  • Each post-it note will be attached to a higher or lower height of the thermometer, reflecting the participant’s “temperature” (the knowledge or skill) in that topic.
  • At the beginning of a project, participants will stick their post-it notes according to their initial level, and each day there will be a brief space for them to move them (up or down).


  • At the end of the project, take time to reflect on the participant’s expectations and compare them to the actual result (as seen on the thermometers).
Things to keep in mind…
  • Every day, the facilitator must take a picture of these thermometers to track their progress.
