Checklist: Assessing Your Employee Performance Evaluation System

Hillary Pettegrew, Esq.
April 2021

Why Read This

One common element in many employment claims reported to United Educators (UE) is a failure to evaluate employee performance regularly, accurately, and consistently. Correcting — or avoiding — this problem would benefit your institution and its employees. This checklist, designed for higher education and K-12 schools, can be used as a guide to help an institution analyze its current performance evaluation system and determine whether changes are necessary. You’ll learn:

  • Broad questions to ask when periodically assessing your employee evaluation system
  • Details to examine when taking a close, comprehensive look at the evaluation system, considering how well it functions and meets your needs
  • Guidance on what to consider when reviewing your evaluation forms to ensure they address critical elements of performance
  • Information on educating supervisors and employees about your institution’s performance evaluation system, process, and expectations
  • Strategies to address performance issues comprehensively in formal written evaluations
  • Considerations if an institution determines it needs to revise or replace its existing performance evaluation system
