Capacity and Organizational Readiness for Evaluation (CORE) Tool
Capacity and Organizational Readiness for Evaluation (CORE) Tool is a succinct, fifteen-question organizational assessment tool. The CORE Tool assesses organizational readiness for evaluation and learning on three dimensions: Culture/Learning Environment; Organizational Leadership; and Resources, Systems, Structures, and Process.
Directions: For each statement, indicate if the action or environment never, sometimes, or often occurs within the organization that is being assessed. After completing the tool, review the never and sometimes columns—these are the actions and environments that must be strengthened to build capacity and readiness for evaluation and learning
