  1. Toggle the Hide Completed Evaluations checkbox to display all Evaluations or just those not completed.
  2. Review the All Evaluators list to see the progress of all Evaluators or use the checkbox beside Evaluator(s) name to see the progress of individual evaluators.
  3. Choose the Edit Evaluators button to add or remove evaluators.

    Removing an Evaluator redistributes remaining Artifacts among the remaining Evaluators. Adding an Evaluator distributes remaining artifacts among the evaluators reducing the number each one needs to complete. When swapping out Evaluators, it is best to remove the old Evaluator before adding a new one.

Evidence Collection Project Reports

Reports on the Evidence Collection project can be run at any time while the evaluations are taking place.

NOTE: that there is a delay between the completion of the evaluation and the update of the reports.  By default, report data is refreshed once every 24 hours, nightly. Report data will generally become available the day following the evaluation.
