|Support Method Only (non-Assessment)
|Support Methods appear towards the top of an assessment and can be used to show how the learner was supported during the assessment.
|Learner Can Start
|When enabled, Learners can start assessments of this method and upload their evidence. Leave this checkbox unticked if you only want Assessors to create assessments of this method and upload the evidence.
|New Class Inherits
|When enabled, this method will automatically be selected when creating a new Class.
|When enabled, assessments of this method will override the consistency rules, allowing the criteria to reach 100% without reaching the required number of assessments.
|When enabled, a drop-down list containing the expert/ witnesses appears at the top of the assesment. Experts/ witnesses can be created via the "Manage" tab on the learner's portfolio page.
|Employer Must Sign Before Assessor
|When enabled, the learner's Default Employer will be sent a task to sign all assessments of this assessment after the learner signs. This doesn't apply to Assessor started assessments.
|IV Sampling Colour
|This is used to make it easy to visually identify which assessment methods have been planned/actually sampled on the IV Sampling Table.
New Methods must be assigned to the class.
