Method and system for facilitating assessments
WO 2002065232 A3
Abstract
A method and system for conducting assessments of business parties and generating data therefrom. According to one embodiment, the user provides assessment characteristic inputs regarding assessment type, depth, and/or objectives to a computer program which, in response to the inputs, selects and displays pertinent requirements to be utilized during the assessment. Screens (32) are provided to display the requirements, and the categories and subcategories related thereto, in a hierarchical fashion. The description or standard for each requirement is displayed and input boxes and/or buttons (35) are provided to allow the user to enter ratings and/or comments or observations regarding each requirement. Such ratings and comments can also be provided for each overall category, and suggested ratings can be automatically calculated based upon the ratings given to the requirements within the categories. For convenience, a tablet PC or other handheld computer (30) can be utilized to execute the program, and voice recognition technology can be utilized to provide the comments. Once the assessment is completed, reports can be uploaded to a central repository which can be accessed by a plurality of users. Morever, the data from the assessment can be added to a compilation database, and summarizing, sorting, and other analyzing of the compilation database can be automatically conducted in order to identify critical issues, trends, improvements, and the like.
