New Optional Tools
Three optional tools have been added to help supervisors make informed decisions about performance. The performance review summary form listed above is the only required form. The optional tools explained below can be used at supervisors’ discretion to help in completing the performance review summary form and to address improvement needs.
The Optional Administrator, Supervisor or Peer Review Form (PDF) (Word) allows supervisors to collect feedback about an employee’s performance from those who work with the employee. The form should be completed at the supervisor’s request and returned to the supervisor.
The Optional Performance Improvement Plan (PDF) (Word) can be used by supervisors after completing the Performance Review Summary Form to address areas needing attention with employees receiving overall ratings of Sometimes Achieves Expectations or Rarely Achieves Expectations on the summary form. It also provides an opportunity to discuss specific improvements needed for employees to Fully Achieve Expectations.
Campus and Institute-Specific Tools
Additional staff performance review forms or other supporting documentation may be used as indicated by campus and institute Human Resources offices.
