Appraisal Cycle 2018-2019
The standard appraisal cycle for classified staff, service professional and post-doctoral scholars will end on June 30, 2019. Completed and signed supervisor appraisals are due to Human Resources no later than September 30, 2019.
Employees have two options to choose from for completing the self-appraisal – one narrative and one with ratings. Both are separate from the supervisor’s appraisal.
- The self appraisal provides employees the opportunity to share their perspective on their performance and share information and details that a supervisor may not always have.
- Employees may choose which version of the self appraisal to use (unless directed by their supervisor): the narrative version has no check boxes or ratings, while the ratings version still retains both. Both ask the same basic information about job tasks, behaviors, goals and accomplishments.
- Self appraisals are kept in the department files unless the employee requests it be attached to the final supervisor appraisal.
For tips on writing self appraisals, visit the Appraisal Form page.
- The supervisor appraisal is intended to be a summary of an employee’s performance over the course of the whole appraisal period based on a combination of observation, interaction, self appraisal input, feedback that may come from others (customers, peers, etc.).
- One basic guideline for writing the final appraisal is that it should not have any surprises. It’s to be a summary of conversations that have occurred or feedback that has been given throughout the appraisal period.
- Once the supervisor and employee have a conversation about the appraisal, the final appraisal with all required signatures is sent to Human Resources. A copy of the signed original should be kept by the supervisor and provided to the employee.
