For programs Provisionally Rated 1-2 Stars, their Star Rating becomes their Active Rating.
Programs Provisionally Rated 3-5 Stars will undergo an independent ERS assessment. To calculate a site’s Active Rating, add the number of points earned in the independent ERS observation to points earned in the Provisional Rating, divide that by the total possible points, now including the 50 total possible ERS points, and multiply that number by 100. Programs that score below a 4.25 on their independent assessment will automatically drop a star level, regardless of the final point calculation.
*Please note that decimal points are not rounded up. Ex: a resulting percentage of 59.56% is 59% (3 Stars).
