Assessment metric categories

In the Assessments application, a metric category represents a theme for evaluating assessable records in a given metric type.

Each category has a numeric weight value to indicate its importance relative to other categories. Within a category, records called metrics are the traits or values used to evaluate assessable records. For example, there are many categories within the Vendor metric type, including Support Rating, which contains metrics that measure the quality of vendors' customer support services. Assessable records must be associated to categories to be eligible for evaluation. Assessment administrators create categories and manage which assessable records each category is associated to.
