View and assess applications

We will call or send you an email to let you know when applications have been assigned to you. You need to log in to the Portal to view and assess these applications.


  1. Log in to the Portal.
    You should see your Assessment Dashboard on screen. If you do not see this screen straight away, click on your name in the top right-hand corner and select ‘Assessment Dashboard’ from the drop-down menu.

  2. Under the My assessments to complete heading you will see the assessments that are assigned to you.
    Each assessment displays the date it is due to be submitted by, a reference number, the name of the applicant, a description of the project and the type of funding applied for.

  3. Click on an assessment to view it.

  4. Click to open the application and supporting information.
    They will open online or be downloaded to your computer for you to view, depending on the format type. If the applicant has submitted support material in a format that is not available online, eg books, DVDs, we will courier these to you. 

  5. To complete your assessment select a score for each assessment question.
    Questions you have not scored will be marked  .
    Once you have selected a score, this icon will change to show your score  #/# .
    enlightenedTIP: You can click these icons to expand and minimise a question.

  6. Read the full question text; for example 'How: The process - Allocate a mark based on your confidence in the viability of the process and planned evaluation'.

  7. Click ‘View assessment scale’ under the question text to open the scale for each question.

  8. Select your score from the drop-down list.

  9. There are spaces for you to provide comments. There may be a maximum and/or minimum character limit for comments.

  10. When you have completed your assessment, tick the box at the end to confirm your comments and scores have been guided by the assessment scales provided

  11. Click 'Submit'.
    When you submit an assessment it becomes read only and you cannot edit it, so you may prefer to complete and save all of your assessments before submitting them to Creative New Zealand.
