The purpose of an employee performance appraisal is to ensure that institutional goals and objectives are attained. A Performance Appraisal should be an ongoing process which occurs informally between the supervisor and the employee. In addition, a formal appraisal of all employees is conducted annually.
An employee being evaluated will participate in the appraisal process by discussing the formal evaluation with his/her supervisor and will sign the appraisal form which will be placed in the employee’s personnel file. An employee’s signature does not mean that the employee agrees with the appraisal, but that the appraisal was discussed with the employee.
The process for conducting performance evaluations is outlined in College Procedures for non-faculty employees (3.22.01.10) and for Faculty members (3.22.01.14).
