Faculty and professional employees are evaluated on their job performance once a year. Evaluations are usually conducted in January and February. Employees are evaluated by the calendar year starting in January and ending in December.

Evaluations must be completed, signed, and returned to the human resources office by March 1.

Evaluation Process

The evaluation process varies by department. However, your supervisor most likely will review your last year’s goals and position description questionnaire (PDQ).

During your review you will be evaluated by a supervisor and given ratings in several different categories. The ratings are:

  • Excellent
  • Commendable
  • Satisfactory
  • Unsatisfactory

Before your evaluation, review your documents to assess how you met your goals and responsibilities.

It’s also a good idea to complete a written self-evaluation whether your department requires one or not. This gives you an opportunity to discuss your performance from your perspective and make sure your achievements are noted.
