MSU Performance Appraisals

Three Steps of Performance Appraisal Process:

  1. Planning should take place in January/February.
  2. Coaching and Feedback occur throughout the performance year.
  3. The review is completed in December or January and submitted to Human Resources Management by April 30. Only the Performance Appraisal form is required to be submitted to HRM in April following the completion of the performance year.



Note: The Excel files will calculate the weighted goals and competencies ratings, as well as the overall rating. You may receive an error message reading, "Macros in this workbook are disabled because the security level is high and the macros have not been digitally signed or verified as safe..." Click OK. Disabling the macros does not affect the functioning of the workbook.
