Quick Start Guide for External Assessors (YouTube, 2m 49s)

Warning: External Assessors are only provided with access to their accounts while they have work to complete (assessments or surveys/forms). Once they have completed all the work, their account will remain active for 7 days after this date. At this point, they will lose access to their account. If and when new work is sent to them to complete, they will regain access to their account.
