Module 09: Performance Management Appraisals and Rating Distortion

In this module, you will explore various data collection options that can be used during the performance management process. Additionally, we will discuss the data collection challenges that often occur during the performance appraisal process. Finally, we will examine the topic of rater biases and errors and focus on how to prevent these issues from occurring.

Question Requirements:

Appraisal Tool

The effective evaluation of employee performance depends, to a certain degree, on the tool that is utilized. Based on that statement, in this Critical Thinking Assignment students will create a one-page Performance Management Form that can be used in an organization. To accomplish this task, complete the following:

  1. Choose any organization in Saudi Arabia that you are familiar with, either one you have been employed with or have studied/researched.
  1. Choose an assessment template that you find beneficial/advantageous (note: typing assessment or evaluation format into Google will bring hundreds of different templates for you to choose). Students can also use one utilized in their current/previous workplace, or one they are familiar with.
  1. Using that template as a guide, create your own assessment tool you would propose to evaluate any employee/position in that organization (for instance, you may choose to evaluate an employee in finance). Be clear about:
    • The assessment/evaluation criteria important in your review.
    • The rating categories (e.g., superior, meets expectations, etc.)
    • An appropriate mix/combination of check-box assessment criteria and short answers.
  1. Please post the assessment template you utilized as a guide along with your own completed assessment tool.

Your form should meet the following structural requirements:

  • 2 pages in length, maximum
  • No need for in-text citations.
  • The assessment tool must be your own work, though you may follow the template/outline of those found via Google.

Be sure to support any statement made in your form, and cite any statement and/or words/phrases that you are utilizing from other sources.

Ensure zero plagiarism. (very, very important)

In advance of submission, review the grading rubric to see how you will be graded for this assignment.
