Fundamentals of an appraisal system
To develop a successful 360 Degrees Performance appraisal system, two criteria need
to be met

• Relevance and applicability to everyday work practice

• Acceptability to appraisers and workers.
A systematic approach to 360 Degrees Performance appraisal can help ensure that
these two important criteria are met.

The following five-step approach to conducting a systematic 360 Degrees Performance

appraisal is recommended:

1. Identify key performance criteria

2. Develop appraisal measures
3. Collect performance information from different sources
4. Conduct an appraisal interview
5. Evaluate the appraisal process.

Step 1: Identify key performance criteria

Perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of setting up a 360 Degrees Performance
appraisal is deciding what to assess. In essence, four key dimensions of performance should
be considered in a performance appraisal.

Key Dimensions of Performance:

Competencies : Knowledge, skills, and abilities relevant to
Behaviors : Specific actions conducted and / or tasks performed
Results / outcomes : Outputs, quantify able results, measurable outcomes
and achievements, objectives attained
Organizational citizenship
behaviors : Actions that are over and above usual job
To ensure that the performance criteria are relevant to work practice and acceptable to
appraisers and workers:
i. Base the performance criteria on an up-to-date job description
ii. Develop criteria in consultation with appraisers and workers
Step 2: Develop appraisal measures

Once clear and specific performance criteria have been developed, the next step is to
decide how to assess workers’ performance. It is recommended that a structured and
systematic approach is taken to assessing performance. Problems that arise when an
unstructured “blank sheet” approach is used include:
• Increased chance of appraiser errors
• Knowledge, skills and abilities most critical to job performance may be overlooked
• Reduced consistency between appraisers
• Perceptions of “subjectivity” in evaluations, which may in turn, reduce workers’
satisfaction with, and acceptance of, appraisals.

Step 3: Collect performance information from different sources

Once the appraisal measures are developed, the next step involves collection of
accurate performance information. A common trap is to begin noting observations of workers
just before conducting appraisals. This is likely to give an inaccurate picture of a worker’s
performance. Ideally, workers’ performance should be observed in a systematic way over
time .This method ensures the accuracy of information about their performances.

Traditionally, it has been the sole responsibility of managers / supervisors to assess

performance. However, other organizational members can be a valuable source of
information as they are likely to have exposure to different aspects of a worker’s
performance. This approach is known as 360 Degrees-degree feedback. For instance,
coworkers can provide valuable information on teamwork skills, and subordinates can
provide useful information on leadership style.

Five different sources of 360 Degrees Performance appraisal information are

considered here:
i. Manager / supervisor appraisals
ii. Self appraisals
iii. Coworker appraisals
iv. Subordinate appraisals
v. Client appraisals.
Step 4: Conduct an appraisal interview
The next step in a 360 Degrees Performance appraisal is to conduct the appraisal interview.
The two central purposes of the appraisal interview are to:

• Reflect on past performance to identify major achievements, areas that

require further development, and barriers / facilitators to effective

• Identify goals and strategies for future work practice.

Step 5: Evaluate the appraisal process

As with any organizational system, the 360 Degrees Performance appraisal process should
undergo regular review and improvement.
“Research is simply a systematic and refined technique of thinking, employing specialized
tools, instruments, and procedures in order to obtain a more adequate solution of a problem
than would be possible under ordinary means. It starts with a problem, collects data or facts,
analysis these critically and reaches decisions based on the actual evidence. It evolves
original work instead of mere exercise of personal. It evolves from a genuine desire to know
rather than a desire to prove something. It is quantitative, seeking to know not only what but
how much, and measurement is therefore, a central feature of it.”
