  Finding my assessments

Assessors have access to their own incomplete assessments for editing and completion and also can find a list of all their completed assessments. On the Home Page click “Login to my assessments” which will take you to the Login page and then to “My Dashboard”. There will be a grid containing the list of your assessments that have not been marked as “Complete”. You can view the assessment by clicking the scientific name or you can edit your assessment by clicking the “Complete my assessment” link.

To access all of your assessments (both incomplete and complete), click on the “Add Assessments” link at the top of the page. You can search by country or species (common or scientific name) and click the “Show only my assessments” box. This will produce a list of all of the assessments that you have contributed for that country or species. Within the grid, you will be able to “Complete my assessment” for incomplete assessments, or “Edit my assessment” for completed assessments.

If you have added an assessment by mistake, you can click the “Delete” link to delete the assessment. Note that this is not reversible, and a deleted assessment cannot be retrieved. It is usually better to edit an assessment rather than delete it.

To search by species name, you can enter the scientific name (genus and/or species) or the common name. The search engine will find all species that contain all or part of the entry. Example: Enter “Acris”. Result: species with the genus Acris and Pseudacris. Note that undescribed and un-named species (e.g. Anodonthyla sp. aff. boulengeri [Ca HM364558]) are also included in the species list. This example indicates that this is a species of the genus Anodonthyla, and "sp. aff. boulengeri" indicates that molecular evidence suggests that the proposed species is related to, has an affinity to the already described Anodonthyla boulengeri. Authors referring to these species usually also include the GenBank accession numbers, so other people can more easily track back the sequence, and thus in this case it would be Ca HM364558.

To find a comprehensive list (not limited to country or species) of all of your completed assessments or those for a particular Assessor, click the “Reports” link at the top of the page and select “Assessments by User”. Select the name of the Assessor from the drop-down menu and click the “Search” button. The resulting grid shows the Assessor’s last name and first name, species scientific name, country and assessment date. You can view the assessment by clicking the scientific name.
