What is the Performance Evaluation Process? An evaluation process has 3 major steps: 1.Goals: Defining what the position needs to achieve? 2.Results: What has the position achieved relative to the goals? 3.Appraisals: What is the assessment of the position toward established goals and produced results? There are steps that happen in between and after, but this is the simplest way to look at what the evaluation process is and the simplest way to look at the EvalS application.
Goals Setting Stage Notifications Area: You will be notified here when goals are due. Click the link to go to Goals Entry Form. My Status Area: You can see that goals are due here as well as the current status of your evaluation. Clicking here is the same as clicking the Notifications area link. When you click on the link, it will take you to the specific section of the evaluation for entering goals.
Goals Entry Form Goals are entered in each text box. This section shows information about yourself and appraisal status You have the option to Save a Draft or Submit your goals when you are ready. NOTE: Goals are a shared responsibility between Supervisor and Employee. In most cases, employees will enter goals after having discussion with Supervisor. Draft Goals are visible to both the Employee and Supervisor. Supervisor should approve goals only they have been fully edited and agreed to. The full definition for each evaluation criteria is below the area name.
Saving a Draft of the Goals Goals are saved in each text box You will see a message indicating the draft of the goals has been saved. You may continue to Save a Draft for further revisions. NOTE: Draft Goals are visible by both the Employee and Supervisor. Supervisor should approve goals only after discussion and agreement.

Results can be entered here starting once the Goals are approved. The Goals that were entered are displayed here, and can no longer be edited by the employee. NOTE: Draft results are only available to the employee. The supervisor cannot see draft results unless employee shows it to the supervisor for discussion. Entering Results by the Employee

The supervisor results are not available for viewing by the employees until the Evaluation is released to the employee.
The Appraisal Step The supervisor enters their evaluation comments in this area after results are entered by both employee and supervisor. The supervisor will select the appropriate rating for the employee in this area. The supervisor can save as a draft to continue working later, or release the appraisal to the employee NOTE: Supervisors should have conversations with the employee about the whole evaluation prior to releasing it to the employee for signature. Once the evaluation is released, employees will receive an communication and may view the entire completed evaluation.
Employee Signature Stage Goals and Results area for individual evaluation area: These are the performance criteria for which goals are set, and results are entered. They help determine the overall evaluation and rating. Appraisal Section: This is where you will see your evaluation and rating. Signature area: Here you will acknowledge reading the evaluation, submit a one time electronic rebuttal if necessary, and electronically sign the appraisal. NOTE: A Rebuttal in EvalS is a one time occurrence, and still must occur within due dates specified for the evaluation. If the employee wishes to submit a rebuttal outside of the application, it must be done through contact with your supervisor and HR. Sign your appraisal here.
