A PD/PI can view the summary statement through the eRA Commons' Status Information screen. The summary statement includes reviewers' critiques of the application and numerical scores for each of (at least) five review criteria. All error free applications received by NIH are evaluated using a peer review process and a 9-point rating scale (1 = exceptional; 9 = poor); the overall impact score is the average of the 1 to 9 scores of each voting reviewer, times 10.
Only the PI can view the Summary Statement, score and percentile information. The information is usually available in Commons within 30 days of the review of the application.
