Overall Evaluation:

Total Score based on the NIH table below:

Score Descriptor Additional Guidance on Strengths/Weaknesses
1 Exceptional Exceptionally strong with essentially no weakness
2 Outstanding Extremely strong with negligible no weakness
3 Excellent Very strong with only some minor weakness
4 Very Good Strong but with numerous minor weaknesses
5 Good Strong but with at least one moderate weakness
6 Satisfactory Some strengths but also some moderate weaknesses
7 Fair Some strengths but with at least one major weakness
8 Marginal A few strengths and a few major weaknesses
