Evaluations

As a conference attendee, your opinion is valued. Your ratings and comments are used to evaluate the current conference as well as plan for future educational offerings. Evaluations must be completed by the deadline of November 26, 2021 in order to earn contact hours.


Logging In

Log In Here
Enter your APNA username and password.
Remember, this log in is different from the one used for the conference site. Your username is the email address associated with your APNA account. If you are unsure of your password, call APNA at 855-863-2762 or click “Reset Password” and the system will email a link to you (it will come from inform@apna.org).

You’ll arrive at the Conference Evaluations & Certificates Page in the APNA portal.

Find and click on your personal link to your APNA 35th Annual Conference evaluations and certificate. If you need to, you can also copy the link and paste it into your browser. (Note: If you do not see this link on your page, please contact inform@apna.org.)


Session Evaluations

The evaluations website will open to the Directions page. Please be sure to read this information before entering your evaluation responses. Then click the Continue button.

The Registered Events page will list the APNA 35th Annual Conference and include 3 buttons:

  • Session Evaluation: where you’ll access all of the individual session evaluations
  • Overall Evaluation: where you’ll complete the Overall Conference Evaluation
  • Post Final Credits & Create Certificate: this button will be greyed-out until you have completed the Overall Evaluation.

To evaluate your sessions, start by clicking the Session Evaluation button. (Click the button that says Session Evaluation, not the circle below it.) This will open the list of days that are available for you to evaluate based on your conference registration.

If you believe there is an error in your registration, please contact APNA.

Click on the appropriate day to see a listing of the sessions available to evaluate for each time block.

Locate the session for which you’d like to enter responses by either the session ID # or the title. Click on the Evaluate button next to it.

The evaluation pages look like this.

The learning outcomes are listed within each session evaluation. You’ll also rate the speaker(s) for the session regarding their teaching methods and whether they demonstrated expertise in the content presented. Remember, you can take notes throughout the conference and complete your evaluations at any point before November 26.
 
The rating scale used for the online evaluations is:
A = Strongly Agree
B = Agree
C = Moderately Agree
D = Moderately Disagree
E = Disagree
F = Strongly Disagree
 
Be sure to hit Save & Continue at the end or your responses will not be saved. This is very important! Once you hit Save & Continue, you’ll return back to the listing of sessions for that day.
Edit-or-reset.PNG There is an Edit button and a Reset button next to the session you have just evaluated.
 
The Edit button will take you to the evaluation page to change your saved responses.

The Reset button will clear out all your saved responses and allow you to start over. Use the “Reset” button if you’ve accidentally evaluated the wrong session.

Return to the list of days

Return to Event Home
will take you back to the very beginning so that you can review any of the directions listed there.

Track Your Contact Hours Earned

Once you start completing your session evaluations, the contact hours will appear in several places:
 
Above the individual time blocks where you evaluated sessions: This will show your contact hours earned for only that time block.

At the top of each session day: This will show your total contact hours earned for the conference and will update as you complete evaluations. Below it you will see your total contact hours for that day.

Underneath the Event Listing on the home page: 
This will show your total contact hours earned. Pharmacology contact hours will be listed separately alongside total contact hours. Pharmacology contact hours will be clearly marked on your Certificate as well.

Overall Evaluation

When you are finished entering in all of your session evaluations (including posters), you are ready to complete the Overall Evaluation. You’ll need to either return to the list of days or to the welcome/instructions page in order to reach the Overall Evaluation button. If you’re on the list of days, the Return to Event Home button will get you there.
Then click on the Overall Evaluation Button.

You will see a page that looks like this. Complete the evaluation questions (be sure to include comments!) and then click on the Save & Return to Event Home button.

The Overall Evaluation is required in order to get your Certificate. Please remember to go back into the site and complete this evaluation so that your “Post Final Credits & Create Certificate” button will activate.

 

Note: If you have gone to the Overall Evaluation page prematurely (you haven’t finished all of your session evaluations), you can click Reset to Last Save to clear out your responses. Then press the back button on your browser.


Getting your Certificate

Once you complete the Overall Evaluation and click on the Return to Registered Events/Create Certificate button, you will be able to access the Post Final Credits & Create Certificate button on the Registered Events page.
 
BEFORE CLICKING THE BUTTON, CHECK THE CONTACT HOURS LISTED BELOW IT. If the contact hours listed do not look correct, do not press the Post Final Credits & Create Certificate button. Go back into your session evaluations to see where you might be missing something. When you are satisfied with the contact hours listed, click the Post Final Credits & Create Certificate button. View a Summary of Total Contact Hours Available

You will see this page. Again, you can check the contact hours earned – listed at the top right of the page. If they do not look correct, click on Return to Registered Events to go back into your session evaluations. Click on Create Certificate.

Once you create your certificate, the Post Final Credits & Create Certificate button will change into Get 2021 Annual Conference Certificate. You’ll be able to log back into this site for several years after the conference to re-print your certificate if needed.
