Each question in the assessment is identified by a short name and is represented using the question text with the Assessor’s response and comments. Clicking on the question number will take you to the definition of this question on the Questions and Answers help page. When an assessment is marked as complete, and saved, the software will then generate the recommended conservation actions. A total score is calculated for each species assessment, based on the values of the answers provided by the Assessor. This score is then used to prioritize species within reports of recommended national and global conservation actions. The scores for each species are not displayed on the assessment results, as they are relevant only when compared with other species for prioritization purposes.
Sometimes, more than one assessor will generate an assessment for the same species in the same country or region. It is likely that due to the differing individual expertise and experiences of each assessor, some of the data will differ between assessments for the same species. Although each and every individual assessment can be viewed, a “consolidated” version of these assessments allows for the different areas of expertise from each of the assessors to be included within a single, more holistic assessment of the conservation needs for each species. Consolidated assessments can be found in the National Recommended Conservation Actions report and on the View Assessments page, for species which have more than one assessment in the same country.
