AIS Reviewer Role Guide

The Assessment Insight System™ (AIS) Reviewer role allows individuals in academic and non-academic units to review and provide feedback to program and unit plans, curriculum and assessment maps, reports, and findings. AIS administrators can assign Reviewer status to existing LiveText accounts to review plans and templates that have been submitted by AIS authors.

During the evaluating phase, the Reviewer can add comments and utilize a rubric to help provide quantitative and qualitative analysis options. This guide will outline the role of the Reviewer and the activities this user can perform in AIS.


AIS Reviewer Dashboard

The AIS Reviewer Dashboard displays the status of a template to which the Reviewer has been assigned. Once a template is chosen from the Select Template dropdown menu, the Dashboard will display the template status, section status, and detail status of the template. The status phases are:

• Not Started indicates that the Author(s) has yet to begin completing the template.
• In Progress indicates that the Author(s) has started, but not yet completed the template.
• Submitted indicates that the Author(s) has completed the template and submitted it to
Reviewer for review and feedback.
• Reviewed indicates that the template has been reviewed and formally approved by the
Reviewer group.

The Reviewer can only access sections of a template that have a status of Submitted or


Template Status

The Template Status view shows a pie graph representing the template’s overall completion status, shown by percentage of each status phase.


Section Status

The Section Status view shows a bar graph representing the completion status of the template’s individual sections, shown by quantity of each status phase.


Detail Status

The Detail Status view shows the Program/Unit(s) to which the template was distributed and to which the assigned Reviewer. For each program/unit, the name and status of each section are displayed. The Reviewer can hover over the status indictor of each section to confirm the phase as Not Started, In Progress, Submitted or Reviewed. If the section status is Submitted or Reviewed, the Reviewer can click on the status indictor to go to that specific section of the Template.
