Create a Met/Not Met Assessment Instrument

While Met/Not Met Assessment Instruments have little statistical value, they are useful to assure that key behaviors have taken place.

Met/Not Met Assessment Instruments are created using the Conventional scoring type and use only one criterion and two performance levels. Report these assessments out separately from other assessments, and do not link these checklists to standards. This type of 'gate-keeping' may also require a second tier of assessment. In that case use the escalation process to advance the submission to another level of assessment.

Step 1: Access Assessment Instruments

1. Click on the Main Menu icon.

2. Click on the Curriculum option.

3. Select Assessment Instruments.

Step 2: Create a New Assessment Instrument

4. Click the New Assessment Instrument button.

5. Enter a Name for the instrument.

6. Select the Parent Group for the instrument by clicking on the Choose Group button.

7. Optionally enter a Description for the instrument.

8. Select the Conventional scoring type.

9. Click Save.

Step 3: Remove Unwanted Performance Levels

Before you begin editing the criteria and performance level descriptions, you will need to remove some existing performance levels until only 2 remain.

To remove unwanted performance levels:

10. Hover your cursor over the performance level and click on the Delete icon.

Repeat this process until there are only 2 remaining performance levels.

Step 4: Edit Remaining Performance Levels

11. Edit the remaining performance levels. The first performance level should be called Met and have a value of "1". The second performance level should be called Not Met and have a value of "0".

Step 5: Edit 'Criterion 1'

Our system will automatically provide you with your first criterion ("Criterion 1") when creating a new Assessment Instrument.

12. Hover your cursor over the green "Criterion 1" box to reveal its options. Click on the Edit icon.

13. Enter a new Name for the criterion.

14. Optionally enter a Description for the criterion.

15. Click Save.

Next Steps...

Since this type of Assessment Instrument is used to acknowledge completion or allow subission of a task that will not be assessed traditionally, you needn't create any additional criteria or provide descriptions for the performance levels. Once you have one criterion and two performance levels, you are ready to link the instrument to a Table of Contents.
