Indicators in data entry

Transcript:

  • There are several important indicators to which you might want to pay attention when monitoring a study
  • Data validations are programmed by the study admin at the beginning of the study.
  • If the entered data in the study or reports meets a certain condition, a message will appear indicating this next to the affected field
  • In case of exclusion messages, further navigation between steps will be prevented and a pop-up will appear indicating this
  • While navigating through the study or report forms, if a form was signed or locked, there will be banners indicating it at the top
  • The signature, lock and SDV icons will also be displayed next to the step name in the step navigator to the left
  • You might also notice a text bubble in certain fields, this indicates an added comment
  • Comments are mandatory when making changes to a signed or verified form or when changing a field’s value
  • So all fields with such changes will have an associated comment. These cannot be modified or deleted.
  • When a query is present for a field, the query icon will be shown next to the field
  • You can see the indicators in the view by phases or steps
  • A lock icon indicates a locked phase or step
  • An SDV icon indicates a step with source data verification
  • A question mark icon indicates the presence of open queries that are yet to be closed
  • This icon with pen and paper indicates a signed phase or step
  • Exclusion icon will also appear in the view by phases/steps
  • A speech bubble indicates that there is at least one comment
  • This was an overview of the monitoring indicators in Castor EDC
  • In the next video lessons we will dig deeper into each indicator
