Default Questions - 

  • Grade - data in this field will be numerical and will allow for calculations - ie average grade etc.
  • Presentation method - This is a dropdown question that will indicate choice of presentation - eg - oral, poster etc
  • Conflict of interest - entries in this field will show in a tab on the 'Assign Reviewers' table to alert admins to any conflicts.
  • Comments - entries in this field will be comments from the reviewer. 


Editing Content of a Question - Click on any question to open up the 'Update a Review Question' screen, where you can amend the question text and content.  Click 'Save' after making changes. 


Settings - On relevant questions there are options to mark them as mandatory by ticking 'Answer required', or to issue them with a tag. Ticking 'Answer is a grade response' will mean that the system will recognise this as a number and calculate accordingly.


Adding a Question - You can add a new question to the review form by clicking '+Q' then choosing the relevant question type from the list.  

Deleting a question -  Click on the trashcan to the right of the question.


Menu Dropdown Questions - By selecting 'Menu Dropdown' in the '+Q' list, you can give a numeric value to an answer, e.g. the Reviewer selects “Excellent” and the system records the value of this question as “5”.  This value is recognised as a number by the system and used to calculate average grades if the 'Answer is a grade response' setting is ticked for the question.



Changing the Order of Questions - You can drag and drop the questions in the Manage Review Form screen to change their order or alternatively click on the vertical arrows at the left of each question to move the question up or down with each click.
