How to Make Evaluation Time Stress-Free!
Peterson, Kristy
College and University, v85 n3 p77-78 Win 2010
When it's annual review time, are you frustrated or overwhelmed by the task of remembering an employee's performance throughout the year? Do you ever feel that if you took notes on each task set within the year, it would be easier for you to summarize the evaluation? There is a way to make everyone's life a little easier when giving or receiving an evaluation: It's called the After Action Review, or "AAR." The After Action Review (AAR) is a structured review or debrief process for analyzing what happened, why it happened, and how it can be done better, by participants and those responsible for a project or event. The "mission" of the After Action Review is to help make the annual evaluation process less tedious and stressful by ensuring that tasks, goals, and/or projects are recorded by streaming or detailing the task, as well as ensuring that all parties, such as the supervisor and the employee, is aware of their performance throughout the year.
