Understanding Scoring Models and Questionnaires

The scoring models among the scoring model drop down menu have been previously defined by the administrator. The administrator defines the scoring models for all items. Attributes that are available to the portfolio items (global attributes) may be used in the model.

Previously, the administrator


       1.      Created the header for a scoring model including the name and purpose of the model

       2.      Selected attributes to be included as criteria for the model

       3.      Assigned weight to the criteria

       4.      Saved and published the model to make it available for use in the system.

These are the origins for the choices in the scoring model drop down list.

For more information about scoring models, see Scoreboard.

Questionnaires are designed with categories, questions, answer ranges, and weights assigned to answers. The total sum of all the weights of all the questions should equal %100. After the administrator does the ratings, the questionnaire can be used in portfolio or strategic reviews. These questionnaires and their weightings directly inform the scoring model. There is a 1:1 correspondence between the weightings assigned to the questions/answers. Those same percentages are used in the scoring model.

The administrator selects a scoring model for a particular review. When a scoring model is selected for a review, all the items that are participating in the review will be defaulted for the scoring model. They become part of a set. They are the set whose values are compared against each other to become the score values viewable in the pop-up window.
