Metric types and assessable records In the Assessments application, assessment administrators create and administer metric types and assessable records. A metric type defines a set of records an organization wants to evaluate, such as vendors, projects, or employees. For each type, the system generates unique assessable records that link the type to records that need to be evaluated, such as the individual records for the vendors Amazon and Intel. There may be multiple assessable records for the same source record if the source record meets the criteria for more than one type. For example, you might want to evaluate a record on the Company table, such as Intel, as a vendor and as a manufacturer, with different categories and metrics. For configuration suggestions, see Administrator tasks. Assessable recordsAn assessable record links a source record you want to evaluate, such as the company record for Amazon or the user record for a sales representative, to a metric type, such as vendors or employees.
