How are we assessing readiness and opportunities for an engaged citizenry? 

Now is the time to come together to cultivate people as informed, engaged, and hopeful citizens. Creating a common knowledge base and practices to measure civic readiness and opportunities will enable us to chart the course to a healthy and robust democracy that works for all. 

The Institute for Citizens & Scholars presents a comprehensive civic measurement landscape review and a first-of-its-kind framework for mapping civic readiness and opportunities. Mapping Civic Measurement: How are we assessing readiness and opportunities for an engaged citizenry? features a collection of measurement tools, rubrics, and more than 200 resources in use by practitioners across education, business, philanthropy, community institutions, media, government, and civil society. 

To launch this groundbreaking report, Citizens & Scholars will present its findings at a virtual event on February 16 at 3pm ET.

  • Danielle Allen, Harvard University
  • David Bobb, Bill of Rights Institute
  • Louise Dubé, iCivics
