Goal scales are a customisable set of levels representing levels of achievement of a particular goal. Goal scales enable you to define the criteria by which a goal can be measured. For example, a scale might have three values 'Complete, In Progress, Started'. Another scale may simply list if the goal was 'Achieved' or 'Not Achieved'.
Each group of goals, or goal framework, can have a different scale so that goals can be measured using a variety of ranges or values.
Be sure to edit the new scale to set the default value and mark which values will be considered as complete.
The existing scale values will be hidden; click on the Click here link to view and edit the scale.
The Default Value is automatically assigned to a user when they have not yet demonstrated the proficiency required by the goal's specified evidence item(s) (course/activity completion, or passing course/activity grade).
Scale values cannot be created, reordered, or deleted in order to preserve data integrity. You can update the Scale value name, enter an optional ID number or change the Description of the item. Note that if you rename scale values it may confuse users when their proficiency changes without warning.
The Scale value numerical value is the quantitative value associated with the qualitative description in the name. Values with Consider complete set to Yes will have a value of 1; otherwise the value will be 0.
