Establish Custom Ratings Criteria and/or Set Up a Blind Review

If permissions allow, Committee Managers can set custom evaluation criteria for rating applicants on a five-star scale. It is also possible to set up a "blind review" in which Evaluators will not see the comments and ratings left by others.

Custom ratings criteria and/or a blind review can be set during the process of creating a position, or when editing a position.

The directions below explain how to add criteria and set a blind review when editing a position.

Select Positions from the navigation bar on the left-hand side

Select "View Positions" on your Faculty Search Account Dashboard

Find and click the position title to open the list of applicants for the position

Find and click the position title to open the list of applicants for the position

Click "Evaluation Settings" to the right of the page

On the Evaluation Settings page:

  1. Click "Add Criterion" to add a custom criterion to the list
  2. Click X to delete a criterion
  3. Select "Blind Review" if you don't want Evaluators to see comments and ratings entered by their fellow committee members
On the Evaluation Settings page:

If evaluators comment during a blind review, and the blind review setting is turned off, then evaluators associated with the search will be able to see summary information but not specific results.

If users with the proper permissions want to see ratings by the evaluator that they will need to run an applications report.
