Your Raters will undertake the same assessment you would have completed in Step 4 of the Wizard. It is vital you read the points below so you can effectively influence your invitees to be part of this process. These instructions are also included as part of the Wizard.
Instructions for Inviting
Once you get to step 5 & 6 of the Wizard, you will be able to send Rater Invitations. If you have received an invitation email to start your assessment, please do not forward this to your raters, instead, you will need to invite them through the Wizard.
To send invitations, first select a Rater type from the drop down menu and then click 'add'. You can choose various categories - or just one if you wish. However, you must reach the minimum requirement of 5 Raters in total, for the 'Send All' button to activate (it becomes orange).
Select the rater categories you want:
Reach the minimum of 5 raters, then hit ‘send all’:
Which are the rater categories?
There are 8 Rater categories:
- Direct Reports
Not all categories need to be completed. For example, you may only want to obtain feedback from your ‘reports’, ‘peers’ and ‘manager’. However, when choosing any category you are required to nominate at least 2 people in each (except 'Manager').
Please note: If only 1 rater in their nominated category completes the assessment, their scores will not be shown in the ‘breakdown of raters’ graph in the report, however their scores will still be aggregated and shown in the ‘others’ circle. If this is the case, this final ‘others’ score will not necessarily amount to the addition of the percentages shown in the ‘breakdown of raters’.
In order to receive a report that shows all your nominated categories, we recommend inviting more than 3 people per rater category, if you are unsure of what the response rate will be.
Is there a minimum of raters required?
Yes, you will need to send invitations to a minimum of 5 people for the Report to be processed. Once you have nominated your Raters, all the invitations can be sent at the same time.
How many Invitations can I send?
The system allows you to send up to 20 invitations. It all depends on how you would like to distribute the Raters throughout the different categories.
What happens after my invitations are sent?
Once the invitations have been sent, your Raters will receive instructions on how to complete the assessment. Our system will also send them automatic reminders periodically over 15 days.
In addition, you will be able to track their progress in step 7 of the Wizard. To read more about managing rater invitations click here.
What happens if my raters do not complete the assessment?
The i4 Report will only be processed after 5 Raters have completed the assessment. After the 15 day period, if the minimum requirement has not been met, you will receive a notification to invite more Raters in a second round. When inviting the second batch, Raters will only have 5 days to complete the assessment, this deadline will be shown in their invitation email.
If for whatever reason, you don’t reach the minimum of 5 raters, you will be able to submit in the second round, however the ‘breakdown of raters’ graph, will not show in the report. And, if no raters respond whatsoever, a Self Report will be generated instead of a 360 Report.
