2020-2021 Performance Evaluation Transition Year Process

The current electronic Performance Development Program (ePDP) system has various system issues that required us to phase it out and replace it with a new system.  For this year 2020-2021, we have created a manual and abbreviated version of the ePDP.  This transition year will be more developmental and communicative in structure.  You can expect the following changes:

  • The transition year evaluation is not as fully automated, but will be more user-friendly than the last few years.  
  • We are encouraging ongoing, more frequent feedback during this transition year which will create a pattern of open communication that continues.
  • This evaluation form is an active document that will be housed in the department and revisited. HR will not receive this evaluation document until the end of the year.

If you have any further question or concerns about the Performance Evaluation Plan, please reach out to GV Performance Management at perfmgmt@gvsu.edu

FAQs

How can I view my assessments from prior years or a current completed assessment?
Current completed assessments or assessments from prior years (beginning with 2009-2010) can be viewed from the left navigation menu on the DashBoard. History of progress on assessments can only be seen if the assessment was in the Discussion Meeting stage, Finalization stages, or completed when the assessment cycle for that year was closed in the system.  If your assessment was in the Annual Planning, Annual Planning Approval, Self Assessment, or Supervisor Assessment stage this means the assessment was not yet shared between staff member and supervisor.  Therefore you cannot view the history of that year's assessment progress online.

I didn't finish a prior assessment. Can I see what I did do online?
History of progress on assessments can only be seen if the assessment was in the Discussion Meeting stage, Finalization stages, or completed when the assessment cycle for that year was closed in the system.  If your assessment was in the Annual Planning, Annual Planning Approval, Self Assessment, or Supervisor Assessment stage this means the assessment was not yet shared between staff member and supervisor.  Therefore you cannot view the history of that year's assessment progress online.

Supervisor Roundtable

Supervisors (including unit heads) of full-time staff, please join us for monthly roundtable discussions with Natalie Trent, Human Resources Specialist, and a rotating co-host. We will discuss and review various scenarios supervisors might face with employees and other supervisory issues. We will also provide a Q & A opportunity so you can get support in working through questions or concerns. We want to draw from the collective knowledge of our supervisors.

  • Please bring your knowledge and experience to share and provide guidance to others.
  • This is not a series, attend one, or a few, or all!
  • This is not for supervisors of student employees, or just functionally lead/provide direction on work.
