    Open data assessment is about collecting, analysing and providing information on the performance of open data initiatives. Open data assessments are used to monitor the progress of open data initiatives, compare and benchmark the
    performance of different organizations or countries and hold governments and
    agencies to account for their decisions and investments. In the past ten years, many different open data assessment frameworks have been developed by researchers and practitioners around the world. Open data assessments can be divided into three main categories: open data readiness assessments, open data implementation assessments and open data impact assessments. Each of these three categories deal with the assessment of open data but focus on different aspects of open data initiatives and practices. In order to provide a better understanding of ongoing assessment initiatives and practices, this chapter reviews fifteen main open data assessment frameworks.
