Take a look at http://members.aol.com/ONeillDon/nsqe-assessment.html (which is just the first web site I found that has a simple list of standard software inspection metrics). These satisfy the artifact requirement by showing the grand total of effort put each inspection, but not individual effort numbers. I believe that metrics shouldn't even give the appearance of measuring individual performance, otherwise they'll be distorted.
As a general rule, metrics should measure the process, not the people.
