CAREFULLY REVIEW THE FOR THE CRITERIA THAT WILL BE USED TO EVALUATE
This is information from the text book,—–
A good place to start to evaluate actual performance is to look to the performance appraisal todetermine if andby how much an employee’s performance deviates from expected performance;this would have beenconfirmed by our earlier job-task analysis.
Many types of performance appraisal instruments exist. If you type “performance appraisalforms” in Google,you will get well over 174,000 hits. Today’s organizations tend to use somestandard performance appraisalinstruments. Here is a sample listing, with brief descriptionsfrom Murphy and Cleveland (1995):
- Critical incidents. The supervisor’s attention is focused on specific or criticalbehaviors that separateeffective from ineffective performance.
- Graphic rating scale. This method lists a set of performance factors, such as jobknowledge, workquality, and cooperation; the supervisor uses these to rateemployee performance using anincremental scale.
- Behaviorally anchored rating scales. These combine elements from criticalincident and graphicrating scale approaches. The supervisor rates employeesaccording to items on a numerical scale.
- Management by objectives. These evaluate how well an employee hasaccomplished objectivesdetermined to be critical in job performance.
- 360-degree feedback. This multisource feedback method provides a comprehensiveperspective ofemployee performance by using feedback from the full circle ofpeople with whom the employeeinteracts: supervisors, subordinates, andcoworkers. It is effective for career coaching and identifyingstrengths andweaknesses.
Regardless of the actual performance appraisal tool used, what is clear is that the performanceappraisalshould appraise the actual behaviors of the expected performance. That is, you mustensure that the instrumentcaptures all the tasks and duties necessary to make a judgment onthe quality of the employee’s performance.Unfortunately, this is not always the case; a goodexample of the performance appraisal instrument not beingproperly aligned with the actual jobduties required was found in my study of certified diabetes educators(CDEs).
