Evaluation Process – Faculty and Professional Employees
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.
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:
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.
As part of the 2020 Annual Evaluation process, UNLV strongly encourages faculty and staff to prepare narrative statements documenting the impacts the COVID-19 pandemic has had on their work conditions and productivity. Documenting the effects of COVID-19 gives supervisors an accurate account of your circumstances under the conditions caused by the pandemic, and facilitates a fair assessment of your performance. Below are guiding questions to assist with preparing your impact statement.
