How to run and interpret mNEAT reports

There are two types of mNEAT summaries you can review: Reports and Results.

  • Reports display overall assessment results and help identify the positive attributes within your local nutrition environment along with opportunities for improvement.
  • Results for each completed venue assessment show its total score, category score (food policy, food availability, behavioral design), and responses for each question.

When reviewing your mNEAT score, keep in mind that initial low scores are common and serve as a baseline to drive change and compare results over time. High scores aren’t easy to achieve. Scores are also customized for each venue type to make them reflective of the food and drink options and availability at different types of venues.

Once you’ve downloaded your local installation or ship’s report, you can review and share the results with your team and stakeholders. There are several key scoring areas and the potential to earn recognition levels.

Scoring recognition levels highlight areas that are more supportive of a healthy nutrition environment. Recognition levels are earned based on the total score of all completed assessments or venue-specific score.

  • Recognition levels: Bronze (55–69%), Silver (70–84%), and Gold (85–100%).

The report shows the “Total Score” (percentage) and, if earned, a recognition level (Bronze, Silver, or Gold). It also includes the total number of venues assessed.

  • Screenshot of mNEAT venues pageThe total score consists of points earned divided by the maximum possible points for each assessment. Note: There are some bonus points for different venues, so it’s possible to have a venue total score greater than 100%.
  • The large radial graph visually displays the scores for each venue represented by different colors. The closer to the outer edge of the graph, the higher the score.

Venue-specific reports are shown with the number of assessed venues, total score (percentage), and (if earned) recognition level (Bronze, Silver, or Gold).

  • Radial graphs represent scores within a specific strategy area such as food policy, food availability, or behavioral design.
    • The following venues don’t include a strategy area breakdown: Vending Level 1, Worksite, Community, and Vending Level 2.
    • The Commissary also includes Community Involvement.
  • Within each circle graph, the score represents the points earned out of the total possible points. For example, “Food Availability” for the commissary: 13.5/16 means 13.5 points earned out of 16 possible points.
