To calculate the food group amount for a specific food item, locate the gram weight from the weights and measures tab and the amount per 100 gram weight for the food group on the food group data tab. Then you can use the following formula. This can also be used to check calculations of nutrients.

Having acceptable practices at entry or at exit is a much harder outcome to achieve because it isn’t just looking at improvement on one or more of the questions, but rather having an acceptable score on all questions within a construct.
The system looks at each question within a construct.
For example, food resource management is questions 1, 2, 3, and 4. WebNEERS then checks to make sure that for each of those questions, the responses are “acceptable” or “good”.

So, on the report, if someone has a 4 or 5 at entry for questions 1, 2, and 4 and a 5 for question 5, they would be included in the acceptable practices percentage.
To find the scoring report for each question:
