Capacity building is a term that is frequently used, yet hard to define and measure.  The CIPP brief “Conceptualizing Capacity Building” presents the different dimensions of capacity building described in the literature and outlines strategies to evaluate capacity building efforts.  It also includes an annotated bibliography with links to useful tools such as state and district capacity assessments.
