The assessment form is divided into separate pages to make the screen layout of forms more user friendly. View this diagram for a description of the different elements in the assessment form layout.
Assessment forms contain the following hierarchy of elements: – Standards: There are 8 standards in the form – two for each of the four domains. – Performance Criteria: Each standard contains a number of performance criteria. – Success indicators: Each performance criteria contains a number of success indicators. – Measure of Performance: the score for each success indicator. – Overall Score: the overall score for each performance criteria. – Comments: available at the end of each standard.
When you open an assessment form, you will find a Course Details Summary panel displayed at the top of the page displaying critical information about the course.
As you can see from the diagram, each page on the assessment form displays several Performance Criteria. The Success Indicators for each Performance Criteria are displayed by selecting the dropdown arrow visible on the left of each Performance Criteria.
You score each Success Indicator by selecting one of four choices – Yes, Yes But, No But or No. Selected scores are colour coded when clicked.
You must also select the Overall Score for each Performance Criteria. The Overall Score is a summary score you assign to each Performance Criteria and its Success Indicators. For example, if you selected Yes, Yes But and Yes for the three Success Indicators, you may wish to assign Yes But or Yes to the Overall Score whereas if you selected Yes But, No and No But for the three Success Indicators, you may wish to assign No or No But to the Overall Score.
Admin Reviewer scores are displayed in dark grey to differentiate them from your own scores which are marked in blue. You cannot edit the Admin Reviewer’s individual scores but you are responsible for assessing the Overall Scores for all Performance Criteria in the assessment. Admin Reviewers cannot select Overall Scores.
The Form has a progress bar above the Standards row to indicate which standard you have completed and how far you have progressed in the assessment.
The Standards row also displays the percentage completed on the far right. If the % indicated is less than 100% at the end of your assessment, it means you have missed one or more scores somewhere in your assessment. Missed scores are identified by clicking each of the Standards on the Standards row until you locate an underlined Performance Criteria description. Dropdown the underlined Performance Criteria and you will see which Success Indicators have not been marked. Mark these and you should then see 100% displayed on the Standards row with a Mark Complete button available below your assessment.
A comment field is available at the end of each standard in the form. A prefix user type identifier is automatically added to each comment once the assessment is saved, i.e. [Admin-Reviewer], [First Reviewer] or [Second Reviewer]. Do not add your name to any comment but do include a reference number as to which success indicator your comment applies.
Assessments can be saved at any point and you are able to return later to complete the assessment. Once complete, you must select Mark Complete.
