Purpose: Identify Army’s best performers and those with the greatest potential Requires candor and courage; frank and accurate assessment Leaders must guard against “word inflation” The OER is an assessment tool -- the Support Form is a counseling tool OER is a forced distribution system Senior Rater top box (Most Qualified) restricted to <50% Rater Left Box (Excels) restricted to <50% Rater narrative focuses on quantifiable performance Senior Rater narrative focuses on potential (3-5 Years) Use the “top box” to identify your best officers and quantified narratives Commander is overall care-taker of all personnel systems Counseling is key Evaluation System Facts

Promotion selection system is based on Army requirements Boards use the Whole File Concept –Based on a series of reports –Cannot predict selection board results based on labels
Do or ensure: Rating schemes are published and approved one level higher Rating schemes are known by Soldiers That Raters understand, and assess performance based on ADRP 6-22 Leadership Attributes and Competencies Develop a “Rating Philosophy” and communicate it to rated officers Oversee & participate in counseling Take appropriate action with problem rating officials as necessary Know current THRU dates of reports on file Anticipate and project “next” Evaluation Current thru date on file plus 12 months or known changes of rater Complete the record dates for those being considered by a board Notify rating officials of upcoming Evaluations Use ERS tools & EES - track rating officials counseling and reports Follow up on receipt and processing at HRC Role of the Senior Rater
Raters must read, understand, and assess performance based on ADRP 6-22 Leadership Attributes and Competencies Ensure rating schemes are published and understood Provide Support Form and Counsel those you rate (mandatory) Develop a “Rating Philosophy” and communicate it to rated officers Advocate Officer to the Senior Rater Recommend future Operational and Broadening Assignments on field grade form Clearly and concisely communicate rated officer’s most significant achievements Focus on narrative comments; selection board members use the rater’s assessment in their file deliberations _________________________________ Anticipate and project future evaluations Keep senior rating officials informed of upcoming evaluations Track evaluations from submission to HRC thru completion Role of the Rater
Mission: Identify your best Counseling – ensure counseling is accomplished. Those that can improve will Raters decide how to assess and use of Excels indication based on performance Senior Raters decide how to assess and use of Most Qualified Based upon potential. Write well – quantify and qualify in narrative; correspond comments with box check as the system allows. Use the narrative to paint the picture Plan ahead, think series of reports (number of times you will rate an officer) 15 Developing a Rating Philosophy
Mentor/Develop your subordinates Support Form (Required)- aids in defining/guiding goals and objectives tied to leadership attributes and competencies Understand how our Evaluation System works Fairly and accurately assess subordinates Narrative is key Exclusive vs. Strong Narrative to describe subordinate Quantify performance & potential…identify your best Be Careful… What you don’t say is just as damaging as what you do say Verify/Certify your subordinates on how to assess Monitor when reports are required, that they’re submitted on time, and unit rating schemes are current and accurate (Leader responsibility) Use Evaluations Reporting System (ERS) Use Evaluation Entry System (EES) Evaluation System – Key Points TASK: Develop and assess Officers
Assessing Attributes and Competencies Linking Doctrine to Leader Development YOUR Mission: Shift from not only discussing how a Soldier “achieved” during a rating period to encompassing all the attributes and competencies desired of Soldiers as part of their overall assessment and how he/she exhibits those attributes and competencies in the performance of their duties that support your unit METL.
References Army Doctrine Publication (ADP) 6.0, Mission Command presents the Army’s guidance on command, control, and the mission command warfighting function. This publication concisely describes how commanders, supported by their staffs, combine the art of command and the science of control to understand situations, make decisions, direct action, and accomplish missions. Army Doctrine Publication (ADP) 6-22, Army Leadership, establishes the Army leadership principles that apply to officers, noncommissioned officers and enlisted Soldiers as well as Army Civilians. Army Doctrine Reference Publication (ADRP) 6-22, Army Leadership expands on the leadership principles established in Army doctrine publication (ADP) ADRP 6-22 describes the Army’s view of leadership, outlines the levels of leadership (direct, organizational, and strategic), and describes the attributes and core leader competencies across all levels. U.S. Army Performance Evaluation Guide ADRP 6-22 Leadership Requirements Model and Example Behavioral Indicators, Center for Army Leadership Fort Leavenworth Your unit’s Mission and Mission Essential Task List (METL) or JMETL
Rater Counseling Responsibilities Provide Rater’s support form along with that of the Senior Rater to the rated Soldier. Discuss the scope of the rated Soldier’s duty description with the rated Soldier within 30 days after the beginning of the rating period. This counseling will include, as a minimum, the rated Soldier’s duty description and the performance objectives to attain. The discussion will also include the relationship of the duty description and objectives with the organization’s mission, problems, priorities, and similar matters. Counsel the rated Soldier - gives the rated Soldier a guide for performance while learning new duties and responsibilities Assess the performance of the rated Soldier, using all reasonable means, to include personal contact, records and reports, and the information provided by the rated officer How do I develop and assess leader attributes and competencies?
Attributes (Character, Presence, Intellect) For example: A leader of Character demonstrates: Discipline DISCIPLINE Development Need Fails to consistently adhere to rules, regulations, or standard operating procedures. Standard Demonstrates control of one’s own behavior according to Army values and obeys orderly practice of administrative, organizational, training, and operational duties. Strength Demonstrates discipline in one’s own performance and encourages others to follow good practices of discipline as well. As situations call for it, readily enforces discipline when others fail to adhere to Army Values or to other standard practices. Source: ADRP 6-22 US Army Performance Objective Assessment Guide
Competencies (Lead, Develop, Achieve) For example: What Builds Trust looks like: Developmental Need Inconsistently demonstrates trust. Displays respect differently to some without justification. Takes no actions to build rapport or trust with others. Fails to address problems caused by team members who undermine trust in the unit. Fails to follow through on intentions, undermining the trust others would have in this leader. Standard Establishes trust by demonstrating respect to others and treating others in a fair manner. Uses common experiences to relate to others and build positive rapport. Engages others in activities and sharing of information that contribute to trust. Strength Demonstrates trust in others when encountering new or unfamiliar situations. Bases trust on a thorough understanding of trustworthiness of others and self, Understands how much trust to project and to grant to others. No hesitation in addressing problems that undermine trust.

Use of Support Form is mandatory for Colonel and below and must be approved one level higher (up to 3 Star Level) Aligns with the revised OER Focuses on Attributes and Competencies IAW ADRP 6-22 Initiate and complete in the Evaluation Entry System Even though there are three different versions of the OER, there will only be one support form because attributes and competencies are not limited by grade. The support form provides 3 pages of instructions that will assist raters with completing the form, and, by extension, the OER. There is a link to the ADRP 6-22 provided on the Evaluation Entry System Landing Page that will also assist with completing the OER Support Form and the OER. Online completion allows for data import to OER OER Support Form 16

A truly superior officer. Rater’s overall Performance
Excels = Absolute top performers Proficient = Good performers, but less than the best Capable = Meets the expectations of grade (Not referred) Unsatisfactory = Failed one or more standards (Referred) Require OER counseling/mentorship from subordinates Be honest and forthright in your assessments Be prepared to explain/justify your rating LT/WO1 reports are masked after promotion to CPT/selection to CW3 Don’t be afraid of Referred Reports Clearly articulate success and failures and explain Know your rated population, e.g., how they perform, when they are eligible for boards, when reports will be due Review rating chains regularly and ensure they are current Know your profile at all timesKnow your profile at all times Understand how to manage and maintain your profileUnderstand how to manage and maintain your profile Rater Tips
Selection boards should understand what input the Rating Chain is providing without having to guess Raters focus on specifics to quantify and qualify performance Raters and Senior Raters SHOULD comment on the rated officer’s abilities to execute mission command in their narrative comments. Mission command calls for leaders with the ability to build a collaborative environment, the commitment to develop subordinates, the courage to trust, the confidence to delegate, the patience to overcome adversity, and the restraint to allow lower echelons to develop the situation Senior raters need to amplify their potential box checks by using the narrative to clearly send the appropriate message to selection boards. Focus on potential (3 to 5 years; command, assignment, schooling and promotion) Cannot mention Box Check in the narrative Be careful with your narrative: - What is not said can have the same impact as what is said - Don’t say the same thing for all your people (Boards can easily detect repeated verbiage) -Avoid using the same verbiage year to year for the same officer (modified cut and paste) -Accurately and fairly assess all officers regardless of branch and functional area -Don’t be afraid of Referred Reports Evaluation Narrative

Rater profile established for raters of company and field grade officers Maintain less than 50% of reports written by grade in the “Excels” box (for raters of LTCs and below) Flexibility - Raters have a “credit” of 3 in the “Proficient” box to start profile Rater OER profiles calculated based on Profile LOCK date as evidenced by “LOCKING” the profile indication (Locking as a Rater is the same as signing and sending to HQDA for a Senior Rater); once an indication of performance is LOCKED, the rater cannot retrospectively change mind (undo) on block check without HQDA exception to policy. LOCKING cannot be completed earlier than 14 days before the THRU Date on the Evaluation. OERs are due at HRC within 90 days after the thru date of evaluation Maintain a working copy of your rater profile and monitor for accuracy EES will have built in profile calculators. This profile calculator is your profile. It does not predict your plans. Profile calculators are provided for raters to use (example on next slide) are available on the Evaluation Webpage at HRC. HRC will explore an automated “Profile Predictor” for future release. Rater Profile Management 16
Rater Managed Profile Labeling Rules Rule #1: If the Rater checks “Proficient” box, then the report is always labeled “Proficient” Rule #2: If the Rater checks “Capable” or “Unsatisfactory” box, then the report is always respectively labeled “Capable” or “Unsatisfactory” - The sum of “Proficient,” “Capable,” and “Unsatisfactory” box checks should always be greater than 50% of total ratings Rule #3: If the Rater checks “Excels” box and rater’s use of “Excels” is less than 50%, then the report is labeled “Excels” - An entry of “Excels” will only be accepted if the mathematical result of the entry is less than 50% of the total number of reports rendered in that grade. Rule #4: MISFIRE – “If the Raters checks the “Excels” box and rater’s profile is equal to or greater than 50%, then the report is labeled “Proficient" and the rater is charged with Excels. Note: Online Evaluation completion will not allow Rater Misfires.

Example Rater Overall Performance Narratives Unclassified Exclusive: CPT Smith is my #1 performer of the 24 captains that I currently rate. His leadership style contributes to the positive command climate in his company, and the discipline he instills in his subordinates has led to the top scores in both PT and marksmanship in this command. He already performs at the level of a field grade officer. Strong: Superb performance! CPT Smith has demonstrated that he can out-perform most of the CPTs in this Battalion. CPT Smith’s rare skills and abilities clearly separate him from his peers, and his demonstrated performance makes him the right choice for the difficult jobs that require innovative planning, meticulous execution, and extra effort. A truly superior officer.
Example Exclusive Senior Rater Narratives Unclassified Without question #1 of 59 hand selected captains and in the top 20 of 279 officers assigned to my organization, regardless of rank. Jim was hand selected as the right officer to handle one of my challenging tasks: learn everything there is to know about the Army Transportation System; Jim has done all that and more. On the path to becoming a future senior leader within our Army, groom him by selecting him for a development fellowship. Select immediately for promotion to major below the zone. Future Battalion Commander. CPT Smith is in the top 5% of all the Captains I rate, and his demonstrated potential places him as the number 1 logistician in the battalion. CPT Smith’s work ethic and logistical expertise have led to the success of countless training operations, support taskings, and the overall success of this battalion. He successfully completed the demanding Special Forces Assessment and Selection Course and will attend the SFQC. CPT Smith possesses unlimited potential. Promote below the zone to Major, and send to resident ILE. He has the potential to be a Battalion Commander.
Example Strong Senior Rater Narratives Unclassified MAJ Green is among the very finest and professional officers with whom I have had the privilege to work in my 26 years of service. Calm under intense pressure, analytical of extremely complex problems, and she always produces well throughout solutions and recommendations. A self-starter, MAJ Green sought out the hardest projects to produce first class results. An all-star performance across the board. If it were within my authority, I would promote her to LTC today and keep her close until the end of my career. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. Superb! MAJ Jones’s performance in an extremely difficult and challenging assignment has been absolutely outstanding. A selfless and dedicated officer, MAJ Jones masterfully handled all the tough jobs in the directorate. His demonstrated potential makes him the right choice for the difficult jobs that require innovative planning, meticulous execution, and extra effort. Absolutely unlimited potential.

Mission Command Mission command is the exercise of authority and direction by the commander using mission orders to enable disciplined initiative within the commander’s intent to empower agile and adaptive leaders in the conduct of unified land operations (ADP 6-0). Mission command calls for leaders with the ability to build a collaborative environment, the commitment to develop subordinates, the courage to trust, the confidence to delegate, the patience to overcome adversity, and the restraint to allow lower echelons to develop the situation. Specifically, mission command requires that leaders receive training, education, and experience to become: Critical and creative problem solvers, agile and able to make decisions in operational environments with uncertainty, complexity, and change Skilled at applying the Army Design Methodology and the operations process Skilled communicators able to create shared understanding and support for the mission Practitioners able to integrate their efforts with unified action partners, sensitive to the operational and strategic implications of their actions Inspirational leaders who are able to engender utmost trust and confidence with and among subordinates and fellow leaders Lifelong students of the Army profession Adaptive leaders skilled in the art and science of influence, including negotiation and mediation Per Chapter 1, 1-4, ADRP 6-22
