By default, each credit in the Reporting Tool is marked “Not Started”. When you are ready to save the information you have documented in a credit, you will have the following options. You will be able to go back and edit credits, including changing the status of individual credits, up until you submit your report.
- In Progress. You are still editing and may not have completed all required and conditionally required reporting fields.
- Complete. You have completed all required and conditionally required reporting fields. Saving a credit as Complete will identify any errors and also calculate the score (for subscribers).
- Not Pursuing. You have decided to opt out of the credit and accept zero points for it.
- Not Applicable (selected credits). The credit is not relevant to your institution and should not count toward scoring calculations. To save a credit as Not Applicable, you will have to select a valid reason from a pre-populated drop-down menu.
Once you publish a STARS Report, all credits that include data will be marked “In Progress” to indicate that they are available for editing.
