Enter the actual result ($) and the planned result ($) into the Pacing to Goal Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pacing to Goal. 

Pacing to Goal Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Pacing to Goal.

P = (AR - PR) / PR 


  • P is the Pacing to Goal
  • AR is the actual result ($) 
  • PR is the planned result ($) 

To calculate the pacing to goal, subtract the planned result from the actual result, then divide by the planned result.
