SDV Requirement definitions

Hi all,
I'm trying to familiarize myself with the SDV function of openclinica as my company may be taking over responsibility for monitoring a study we're managing data for. One thing that's confusing me is when setting the SDV requirement for a CRF in an event "Partial Required" is an option. How does this differ from the 100% required, when the extent of what's captured by the SDV (that I can tell) is a check box, which by its nature seems either 100 or 0 %?

    Hi Brendan,
    Very good question. I added some clarification of this to the SDV user
    guide page (https://docs.openclinica.com/3.1/openclinica-user-guide/monitor-and-manage-data/source-data-verification),
    as follows:
    When you add CRFs as part of creating the Study Event Definition, you
    specify if Source Data Verification is not applicable, not required,
    partially required, or 100% required for the CRF.
    What does 'partially required' mean? Often there are CRFs which
    require 100% review, meaning every field on every CRF should be
    reviewed (such as for Adverse Events). Other CRFs, however, may only
    need to be partially reviewed. OpenClinica does not define what
    "partial" means, but it would be defined in your monitoring plan and
    you would instruct your team as to how to use this. Typically there
    are two ways that "partial" is used in organizations:
    An organization may identify several fields in a CRF which are
    critical to the study. Monitors would be instructed to review only
    these fields in a CRF (rather than the whole CRF) for all of the
    subjects.
    A monitor may review every field in the CRF but may only do this for a
    percentage of the subjects (instead of all subjects).
    Best,
    Cal

    Thanks for the clarification Cal. Glad to see I wasn't missing some system function behind the different settings. I checked the user guide for some meaning for the predefined terms before I asked, I hope your update can spare some other users my confusion.
