How can I weigh the importance of the Automated vs Manual Assessments?

In Schoox, members’ metrics can be determined either by their progress in their training or by the assessments that their managers made for them. You, as an Admin, are able to weigh their importance on the members’ final rating. To do so, go to the Performance Metrics section and click Automated vs Manual. On this page, admins can also choose what exam scores will be passed over to metrics as automated assessments. 

Please note that the automated assessments come from online training while the manual assessments are assessments conducted by managers. 


To weigh the importance of Automated and Manual Assessments on the members’ final rating just adjust the bar to achieve the desired ratio. As an example, you can choose that for a user’s final rating we should take into account 30% of their automated assessment’s rating and 70% of the rating they were given by their manager.

>Automated Assessment

The automated assessment’s rating corresponds to the connected course’s exam score. The automated rating for a metric connected to a course is updated according to the user’s score on the course exam.

Only passed exam attempts are taken into account to calculate the user's automated assessment score. On this page, admins can specify what exam scores will be passed over to metrics as automated assessments.

There are two options here:
1) Only the score from the first passed attempt to be passed as an online training metric score

2) The average score of all passed attempts to be passed as an online training metric score


Please note that a metric-connected course should always include an exam. Otherwise, the automated assessment will be incorrect.

>Manual Assessment

The manual assessment rating of a metric is a result of all the assessments the managers and admins have completed for a user, for this specific metric. An Admin can assess all Academy members by using the Perform Assessment page. In the same way, managers can use the Perform Assessment page to assess the members under their organizational structure whenever they want to. Additionally, Admins can request from their managers to assess the users under their org structure, and this assessment also counts for the members’ manual assessment rating.

>Self Assessment

Regular users may have the ability to assess themselves if their Academy Admin has given this option through the Advanced Academy Settings. However, these assessments do not count in the users’ overall manual ratings. The self-assessment rating only works to help the Admins have a better understanding of the perception gap between how members and managers assess the members’ metrics and abilities.
