Rating scale

Numerical evaluation: The consistency between the numerical rating and the written comments is particularly important. In the draft review (before the panel meeting) the numerical evaluation is made with a rating scale ranging from 6 (outstanding) to 1 (insufficient). In the final reviews (in the panel meeting) the scale ranges from 6 (outstanding) to 3-1 (fair to insufficient).
