Committee Review: Reviewing and Submitting Feedback

Committee Review: Reviewing and Submitting Feedback


Hi! My name is Derek and I’m part of the Content Design and Development team here at Blackbaud. Let’s take a look at how reviewers access candidate records, read files and submit recommendation feedback using the Committee Review features. Committee review streamlines the candidate review and decision process by keeping all relevant information in one, easy to find location without having to clone roles, or give access to sensitive information. As a reviewer, you’ll have access to the review center where you can review candidate details like Test Scores, applications, recommendations, and other general information important for the review process. Using these details, reviewers provide feedback which assists admission managers with making a decision. So, you’ve been assigned the Committee Reviewer role. What’s next? From Faculty, select Committee Review to be taken to the Review Center. Here, you’ll find all candidates you’ve been assigned that are waiting to be reviewed. In addition, you can customize this list through filters for entering year or the committee, use the search to find a specific candidate. Select a candidate to see his or her relevant details appear including candidate information, connections, test scores, files & forms, including applications and recommendations plus anything else needed for reviewing. Once you’ve read the candidates file and are ready to provide feedback, select Review candidate. A flyout panel appears with the fields originally set up by the admissions manager. Information needed may include: Making a recommendation by selecting a value from a dropdown Adding recommendation tags or include a written narrative review If enabled, a summary selection is shown with information from other committee reviewers. When all information is entered, select Submit review to confirm and add your thoughts to the candidate. One thing to keep in mind is that once you submit your review, it becomes locked and can’t be changed until the admissions manager unlocks it. Reviews are locked to protect the admissions manager who is responsible for making the final call on a candidate. If the information in the review continually changes, it does makes their decision process much harder or may cause them to miss critical information added after the fact.
