Which of the following is incorrect about a self-learning system for effectiveness-based programme planning?
A self-learning system can help to strengthen the linkage between performance measurement, monitoring and programme evaluation.
Self-learning systems collect data or feedback from users about their operations, analyse the data and use the results to adjust how the programme operates.
A thermometer is an example of a self-learning system. You can use a thermometer to monitor the temperature of the room in order to adjust the air-conditioning as needed to maintain a comfortable environment.
