Successful Appraisals Require Knowledgeable raters who have directly observed the employee ’ s work performance or work product and... Who can rate without error or bias... Using valid and reliable quantitative and qualitative performance measures.
Documenting Non-Performance First and foremost, DO IT! Record the relevant facts. Tell both sides. Give all the details – who, what, when, where and why. Review and follow PHA policy and practices. USE THE FORMS.
