The evaluation of the performances of a toroidal grating for the high-resolution EUV spectroheliometer (HiRES) has been realized. This is a holographically ruled grating operating in a normal incidence Rowland configuration at the 510 - 630 angstroms spectral range. An analysis of the grating resolution performances has been realized by means of a scintillator- intensifier-CCD detector showing very good results. Also a measurement of the grating diffraction efficiency has been performed, showing on the contrary a value lower than the predicted one.
