Saving occurs automatically in APTA Clinical Performance Instruments as you click away or tab to the next section on an evaluation. For example, when you click in a text box and enter your comments for a criterion, then click the rating scale, the comments section that was just completed is automatically saved. Saving is indicated by a green checkmark that appears next to the item that was saved. When you select or change a rating, the information is automatically saved. This simplifies and streamlines the saving process.
Note: If you see a red X instead of a green checkmark when you are editing a comment box, rating, or section sign-off, this indicates that the item you were working on failed to save. This can be caused by a firewall/network IT policy that periodically runs a task on the network and disables some website functionality from working correctly, including the auto-save feature. To work around this:
- Copy and paste any comments associated with the criteria into a document outside of APTA Clinical Performance Instruments.
- Make note of any ratings and where they were located so that you can re-enter them correctly.
- Log out of APTA Clinical Performance Instruments by clicking Log Out in the upper right corner of the page.
- Close all your internet browsers.
- Reopen your browser and log back in to APTA Clinical Performance Instruments.
- Return to the edit portion of your evaluation.
- Paste the comments from your document into the evaluation. A green checkmark for each criterion now appears.
