Expand the Benchmarks category.

  • Benchmark A benchmark is a standard by which a grade can be measured. Benchmarks can be set for all sessions in the Overview. A participant falling below the benchmark will display the percentage in red, and a participant falling at or above the benchmark will display the percentage in green.
  • Performance Scale - A performance scale can be set to display a text or numeric value equal to how the participant has performed across all sessions. The default is set to view as an educational grading scale but can be adjusted to fit other purposes. Default values can be restored at any time by clicking Restore Defaults. Any changes will be lost and replaced with the default values.
