3 Purpose of Evaluations To measure performance in an objective, unbiased manner; develop individual plans for improvement based on agreed-upon goals, strengths and weaknesses; evaluate growth and future career plans; encourage continuing participation in professional development and identify growth opportunities; and provide the opportunities for formal feedback.Evaluations should encourage excellence by providing a written assessment of work performance and should communicate performance standards to the position and encourage growth and improvement.Evaluations should reflect a constructive attempt to assess strengths and weaknesses, and to suggest ways in which skills, relationships, and professional knowledge can be enhanced.Evaluations should reflect whether or not achievement of set goals/objectives have been met and should also include the agreed-upon goals/objectives for the next evaluation period.These were taken directly from the CBA/Handbooks….we can add or delete or just pick out the phrases we like most that convey the message we want to convey
