Performance appraisal forms
Performance evaluations at UCOP include the following elements: a description of performance goals and objectives, examples of how the previous goals were met, and a performance rating on a 5-point scale.
There are two evaluation forms, Non-Supervisory and Manager/Supervisor. Employees are assigned the appropriate form in eAppraisal and will receive notification to complete the appraisal.
