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.
