Finishing the 2016-2017 Performance Appraisal Cycle

The classified staff, service professional, and postdoctoral scholar appraisal performance period will end on June 30, 2017. Here are some tips and reminders about completing and submitting appraisals to Human Resources by the September 30th deadline.

 Employees:

  • Employees should write a self-appraisal and turn it into their supervisors.
  • There are two different self-appraisal formats to choose from:
  • Narrative version – no check boxes/rating
  • Ratings version – retains the rating check boxes
  • Employees may choose which one they prefer to use (unless otherwise directed by their supervisor). Visit the HR Forms Index to download.
  • Visit the Appraisal Form page for tips on writing the self-appraisal.
  • Performance Appraisal Training (HR200) offers employees an overview of the appraisal process and the role they play in the process. Visit Register for Training to sign up.

 Supervisors:

  • Supervisors should be asking employees for their self-appraisal and preparing to write the final supervisor appraisals.
  • The appraisal form with five rating options is the only version that will be accepted. Please visit the HR Forms Index to ensure that you have the correct version.
  • In June and July, training on Writing and Delivering the Appraisal (HR302) offers supervisors guidance on writing the final appraisal and preparing for the meeting with the employee.
  • Performance Appraisal Training (HR200) offers both employees and supervisors an overview of the appraisal process and the role each plays in the process. Visit Register for Training to sign up.
