The Council for Excellence in Government is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that serves as an independent catalyst for constructive change in government and meaningful public engagement. Their mission is to improve the performance of government at all levels, and to enhance the connection between citizens and government. As part of that mission, the Council has developed a practical “gauge” to assess their preparedness, recognize their successes and identify gaps where more work needs to be done.
The RQ Test can be used by individuals & families, workplaces, schools, neighborhood groups, local and state government leaders, and local media. Taking the test will give you your “RQ score” (1-10) and links to tips and resources to improve your score and personal preparedness.
