About Assessment Templates
An assessment template is a model used to generate an assessment. Assessment templates can be created to assess opportunities, contacts, and accounts, as well as other areas of the Siebel Business Applications.
Assessments ask questions (in the form of attributes) and score the answers to determine a single total score or percentage, which measures or ranks a given opportunity, contact, account, or so on.
Assessments are made up of one or more attributes. Each attribute has a name, a weight, a set of allowable values and a description field. For example, a common attribute for an account might be Credit History. The values for this attribute might include Excellent, Good, Average, and Poor. Each of these values carries a numerical score and, optionally, instructions for the user on how to choose the correct value.
Typically, the administrator creates assessment templates, and users apply the templates and complete the assessments.
