    Tips for taking SCORE

    Welcome to SCORE, a sustainability assessment that measures the degree to which an organization has embedded sustainability into its business practices and systems.* Remember that the three levels of performance are additive; e.g., in most cases, you must meet the Incubator criteria to qualify for the Initiative score.

    * Its okay to give yourself a score other than the 1, 3, and 9 levels (e.g., 0.5 or 4).

    * If you dont meet the criteria for the Incubator level, give yourself a zero (or perhaps a 0.5 if you meet it partially).* View the descriptions of each level as examples of what you might see at that level. You will have to interpret them for your sit

    * When in doubt, it is often useful to go back to the description of the practice.

    How to use this file:

    1. Enter information about the organization being assessed in the "Client data" tab.

    2. Enter the organization's scores for all the practices on all appropriate assessments. Leave as NA any practices that are not applicable in a specific assessment and skip any assessments/tabs that aren't relevant.

    3. Rate the relative importance of the TBL performance areas from the perspective of the outside world. What would they expect should be top of your list of priorities? Use 3, 6, and 9 (or 1-10) where higher numbers are higher importance.

    4. If desired, review the graphs for the functions and appropriate sector worksheets.

    5. Send your data to darcy@axisperformance.com for analysis. We will send you a detailed report of our findings and recommendations, including data about how your organization compares to others that have taken SCORE. (Mini-SCORE for small business, use t
