What:

Assessment Criteria is a tool used for judging individual ideas and comparing them to the common criteria to assess how relevant they are to the established criteria.

How:

In a group, decide on the criteria that is most valuable to you in judging individual ideas.  The prioritized criteria list should be organized in a way that individual participants are encouraged to look beyond their own values and consider the opinions of all stakeholders.

When making decisions, score all ideas based on the established criteria.

Why:

Using criteria that has been assessed and agreed upon by the group is useful for considering the opinions of the stakeholders and making decisions based on the values of the group, as a whole.
