Important Changes

This cycle includes following important changes from previous years:

  • Overall Rating Scale: The overall rating is now a three-point scale: Exceeding Expectations, Meeting Expectations and Not Meeting Expectations.
  • Goal Weighting: All goals are weighted in whole numbers and cannot have a weight lower than 5 percent.  These weights must be the same as the most recent performance plan.
  • Numerical Scores: The overall rating is not subjective.  Each goal will receive a score based on the employee’s performance.  These scores are added together for the employee’s total score, which correlates directly to the final overall rating.
    • 1.00-1.69= Not Meeting Expectations
    • 1.70-2.69= Meeting Expectations
    • 2.70-3.00= Exceeding Expectations
  • Ineligibility for Overall Rating of Exceeding Expectations: Employees cannot receive an Exceeding Expectations overall rating if they have received a disciplinary action during the performance cycle and/or received any rating of Not Meeting Expectations.
  • One Form: The 2016-2017 annual review should be done on the same form as the 2016-2017 performance plan.
