ePerformance Progress Check-Ins

To encourage continuous growth, the university has implemented a review process that includes two Performance Check-Ins per year. Both check-ins will provide employees and managers a chance to discuss recent efforts, goals and opportunities for growth. Employees and managers will also share mutual feedback and plan for the months ahead. Progress Check-Ins are just one step in the continuous process of improving the way our university functions. You can learn more about the Progress Check-In process as well as get access to resources below.

Annual Progress Check-In calendar

The performance review calendar includes two scheduled Progress Check-In discussions throughout the course of the fiscal year, with the second check-in including a manager rating.

  • First Progress Check-In: Mid-fiscal year discussion
  • Second Progress Check-In: End-of-fiscal year discussion and ratings

For FY22: The FY22 end-of-year rated progress-check in forms should be saved in ePerformance by Thursday, June 30, 2022.

Units may set their own internal deadlines for completing the self-review and manager assessment to allow flexibility around business needs as long as forms are saved by Thursday, June 30, 2022. Suggested dates for each step are provided in ePerformance, but please connect with your supervisor to confirm deadlines for your unit. Additionally, if needed, discussions can be scheduled after June 30.

 

Overview of the process

The Progress Check-In will include a self-review followed by a manager assessment, both completed in ePerformance. In addition, the employee and manager will meet to discuss both the self-review and the assessment. Once the progress check-in meeting occurs, employees will have the ability to make final comments. Both Progress Check-Ins will have three areas for both the employee and manager to review:

  • Successes and accomplishments
    • What has the employee achieved/completed since the last Progress Check-In?
    • What is working well and helping the employee meet their goals/objectives?
  • Concerns and growth opportunities
    • Has the employee experienced any challenges in meeting their goals?
    • Are there any professional concerns or developmental opportunities?
    • Are there any changes to these goals that the employee or manager should consider?
  • Next Steps
    • What are the next steps for the employee and the manager?
    • What assistance does the employee need to accomplish their steps?
 

Rating scale

The last Progress Check-In of each fiscal year will include self ratings, manager ratings and a section for an overall summary. Ratings should reflect the level of performance for the entire fiscal year using the following scale:

  • 1: Needs developmentDoes not consistently meet all expectations. Additional direction and support are required/needed.
  • 1.5: Reliably delivers Sometimes needs additional direction and support.
  • 2.0: Reliably delivers Consistently meets expectations. Might exceed some expectations. Requires little to no additional direction to achieve established responsibilities.
  • 2.5: Reliably delivers Frequently delivers beyond expectations.
  • 3.0: Consistently exceeds Consistently exceeds or delivers beyond expectations. Influences others to perform better.
 

Providing valuable feedback

As employees and managers complete Progress Check-Ins, especially those that require the annual rating, there are a few things we encourage they take into consideration and utilize as part of the process. Consider:
