2.4.1 Criteria Color Thresholds
Each Criteria is comprised of two
components: Criteria Statement and Criteria Responses (see Figure 10).
Figure 10: Criteria Statement and
The rules for
evaluating Program Health Criteria are as follows:
Read the Criteria Statement
first, then read each of the color coded Criteria Responses.
To select a Green Criteria
Response, the program must meet all elements of the Criteria Statement above it.
The lowest Criteria
Response applicable to the program must be chosen. For example, if a program meets elements of both
the Yellow and Red Criteria
Responses, then the user must select Red.
If a Criteria is not
applicable to the program, select the “N/A” grade in the Naval PoPS Criteria Spreadsheet. If “N/A” is
not an available response, the user
should select Green.
Each Criteria Response is associated with a specific numeric
point value. Criteria points are calculated by multiplying the color
threshold percentage (see Figure 11) by the maximum points possible for a
specific Criteria Statement. Criteria maximum points are embedded in the
Naval PoPS Criteria Spreadsheet for each Gate.
