If you will be completing the assessment with your partners or collaborators, convene the group once everyone has worked through the tool independently.   You will likely need to select a facilitator for this part of the process, a person who can ensure that the conversation is productive and that everyone has a chance to contribute to the dialogue.  Set aside a couple of hours to complete the tool and allow ample time to decide on next steps.

First, ask people to compile their individual results onto the individual summary table on the Summary of Results page of the Sustainability Formative Assessment Tool© if they’ve not already done so. This one-page summary will make dialogue easier as people will avoid flipping through pages during discussion.

Next, take the individual summaries and input all responses into the Sustainability Assessment Report spreadsheet . Once all responses are inputted into the spreadsheet, it will produce results in the form table and some simple statistics.
