Completing Your First CSIF

To complete your CSIF for the first time, do the following:

  1. After logging into CSIF Web, click the 20XX CSIF Web Surveys tab on your home page.

  2. This connects you to the Current Site Surveys page. When you select your clinical site from the drop-down (if you are the SCCE for multiple sites, select the site you wish to edit), the name of the site appears, along with a "There is no currently active survey for..." message. To respond to "Who do you wish to work on this survey?", select from the list of all SCCEs that are registered in CPI Web. To designate one or more of your CIs to have access to fill out the CSIF, check the box next to their name. If you don't see your clinical site in the drop-down, please contact CSIF Web Support.
  3. Click Start New Site Survey to begin completing the CSIF.
  4. To edit the clinical staff or students that have access to edit the CSIF, check or uncheck their name from the window that appears, and select Update Reporters. Students are granted access to edit the CSIF by default when they are assigned to attend your clinical site for their clinical experience. They will no longer have access to edit/complete the CSIF after they sign-off on their Final CPI in CPI Web.
  5. Click one of the red topic names to access the sections that need to be completed or click directly on one of the sections to edit that particular section.
  6. In the Action column, click Edit Now to enter or revise information associated with a particular section if you clicked directly on a particular section earlier, that section opens and is immediately editable.
  7. To complete the CSIF, fill in the information.
    • Note: CSIF Web has an Auto-Save feature. When you enter in data or select information from a list or drop-down, the data automatically saves when you move on to the next field. This is indicated by a spinner, and then a green checkmark.
  8. At the end of each section, look for the "Section Sign Off" message. Click the box that says: "This section has been completed. If you do not click the "This section has been completed" box for each section, those sections will be "In Progress". The Last Update column shows the Date and Time that the section was last updated.
  9. Click another topic tab to continue completing the CSIF, or, if you are finished editing the CSIF, click Log Out.
