Individual Evaluations

Evaluation scores consist of a No, Not sure, Yes, and Strong yes rating scale.

Each rating has a value:

Strong yes - 100%
Yes - 75%
Not sure - 50%
No - 0%

Overall Summary

Adding up the evaluation scores done by each evaluator results in an Average either for current job or all the jobs will result in final evaluation.

If a candidate has one "Strong yes" and one "Yes", they have an 88% positive evaluation.
If a candidate has one "Strong yes" and one "Not sure", they have a 75% positive evaluation.
If a candidate has two "No" evaluations, they have a 0% positive evaluation.
In case of 2 "strong yes", 2 "yes", 1 "Not sure", 1 "No" the overall score is 67%: (100 + 100 + 75 + 75 + 50 + 0) / 6 = 67% (rounded to next integer value)
