Evaluation of Classified Employees. Research into Practice
Williamson, Ronald
Education Partnerships, Inc.
Evaluation is an important tool to develop and retain skilled employees. It should be used to recognize employees that are performing well, to identify areas for growth and to provide employees with clear, explicit feedback about their performance. An agreed upon appraisal system lets employees know what is expected, what is recognized and rewarded, and what is unacceptable. Sound evaluation systems incorporate several key elements: (1) Reliable Data; (2) Job Related; (3) Standardization; (4) Manageable; (5) Results are Shared; and (6) Due Process. While there is no uniform approach or format to the evaluation of classified employees, there are patterns to the data that is collected and the abilities that are assessed. They include: (1) Work Knowledge and Performance; and (2) Personal Abilities. Most evaluation systems include a checklist with a rating scale. They generally include a location for open-ended comments by the evaluator, and signatures by the evaluator and employee. Some systems include identification of future goals.
