Last week, Extension staff received an email with a link to the 2013 performance evaluation. Staff can also access the evaluation form directly through ULearn. A link to the form, along with instructions on how to use the online system can be found on the Human Resources section of the intranet. Self-reviews must be completed by January 24, 2014.
This year, Extension is using a new online tool to complete evaluations. Although the tool is different, the content of the self-review is the same as it has been in previous years. Two webinar sessions were scheduled to address user questions. The first webinar was held on December 2; the second session has been rescheduled to Friday, January 3, 9-10 a.m.
Following are answers to some commonly asked questions from the December 2 webinar:
- Managers cannot see the review until the staff member has completed the self-review.
- Stakeholder or peer input will need to be managed outside the online system this year.
- We are currently not using the Development Plan function in ULearn.
- Goals cannot be saved to work on later, but any edits or changes that are made will be submitted to the supervisor for approval. Staff are encouraged to write out their goals/professional plan of work (if applicable) in advance on a Word document, then copy and paste it into the online text box once they are ready to submit.
Listen to the full webinar recording for more Q&A. Please direct additional questions about the performance review to your supervisor.
