The SAT-LITE is composed of approximately 50 short, multiple choice questions across five core themes: Management Framework; Addressing activities & threats; Research & Monitoring; Outreach & Engagement; and Management effectiveness. The answers to these questions have been assigned a numerical value and the total of which provides key considerations as an indication if the user should complete the full-version, as well identifying any immediate gaps in MPA management plans.
As you progress through the SAT, you will be prompted to fill out various sections and answer a range of questions. As you progress through the SAT-LITE, other questions are responsive to other answers, removing any questions that are not deemed necessary, therefore reducing the time required for its completion. Please ensure that you complete all the questions to enable dashboard outputs.
Prior to completing the SAT-LITE, we highly advise that you “Save As”. This will allow you to make a copy of the SAT-LITE and retain a blank version for editing and future use. Once you have saved a copy, proceed through the SAT-LITE using the functional navigation page and buttons.
The SAT-LITE is comprised of questions related to the factsheet topics (which can be found here). The factsheets have been designed to be resources for general knowledge, examples of best practices and available trainings.
