How your Scorecard Maturity self-assessment score is calculated
The Scorecard Maturity self-assessment tool helps countries assess their scorecard. This process helps them understand where their scorecard is performing well and where it needs further improvement.
To assess your scorecard, you answer several multiple-choice questions. These questions are divided across 5 key success factors.
After completing the self-assessment tool, you will be given a maturity score and a list of curated recommended improvements tailored to your country’s specific scorecard situation.
What scores we provide
Your scorecard will be given an:
- overall scorecard maturity level and percentage score
- individual maturity level and percentage score for each of the 5 key key success factors
Key success factors
The 5 key success factors are:
- use as a management tool
- decentralisation of the scorecard
- sharing the scorecard with stakeholders
- institutionalisation and political use
- documenting and evaluating the scorecard
The 5 maturity levels are:
- Level 1: Needs strengthening
- Level 2: Initiated
- Level 3: Established
- Level 4: Advanced
- Level 5: Institutionalised
Calculating the individual maturity scores for each of the 5 key success factors
Each key success factor has 1 to 5 questions to help us understand the scorecard’s maturity for that specific key success factor.
You answer each question based on how well you think your scorecard is delivering this factor. Each answer in the Scorecard Maturity self-assessment tool is assigned a maturity level.
Each maturity level score is given a numerical value. We combine each of your answers’ numerical values and calculate the average for that key success factor. We use this average to provide you with the key success factor’s maturity level and percentage score.
