Admins have the option to customize the weight of each severity (Severe, Major, Minor), allowing institutions to create a more precise accessibility score that aligns with their priorities. For example, if all severity types have a weight of 1, they will equally influence the document’s accessibility score. However, if the weights vary: Severe-25, Major-10, and Minor-1, then severe issues will affect the score 25 times more than minor issues, and major issues will affect the score 10 times as much as minor issues.
Customizing Severity Weights
- Log in to your institution's LMS as an admin and access the Panorama LTI link.
- From the left-side navigation menu, click Configuration and then select Issue Settings.
- Adjust the weight of each severity, meeting your institution’s requirements.
- Click Save Changes to apply the custom weight values. All new documents sent for reprocessing will use the new values to calculate the Accessibility Score.
