The ability to copy comments from the observation template is a setting activated by whoever manages Strive as the Appraisal Administrator. This person will need to activate the setting in the Summative template options tab to allow the appraiser to select the option to bring the comments over to the summative template. Once this is set, the following steps will allow you to create a summative form with pre-populated form data from the observation form(s).
- Select the staff member you will be appraising.
- Select the Summative template to be used to evaluate the appraiser.
- On the pop-up to enter the classroom, check the box indicating you want to "Copy existing Observation data into the Summative".
The Summative document will bring in your previous scores and comments from the Observation form. If multiple observation documents were used, scores will average and show the average points from all the forms. Comments from multiple forms will fill the comment boxes using a line break to indicate the separation of comments from forms.
