Performance Evaluation Forms

New Process for Performance Evaluations

We are keeping our virtual process and accepting only electronic performance evaluations. Click the links below for more information.

The performance evaluation form is an important tool that encourages continued dialogue between supervisor and employee. The employee classification(opens in new window) determines the Unit or CBID for the employee, which determines the form to use.

Current forms for staff and management (MPP) are listed below.  Forms open in Box and you must download form first then open in Acrobat. Next, click "Enable All Features" to complete. Note: if the browser displays an error, look for the file in your downloads.

Managers must use the same form for similarly situated employees in their department.

Virtual Process for Performance Evaluations

Managers should plan on completing evaluations (and on being evaluated) under normal timelines. Keep in mind that the present circumstances may not represent the full range of an employee’s annual work performance.

For downloading and opening PDF documents we recommend Chrome browser with Adobe Reader plug-in enabled.  Review Knowledge Base articles Enabling Adobe Reader plug-in in Chrome(opens in new window) and Opening PDFs from Box(opens in new window).

Electronic Routing and Signature

  1. Download, complete and save the evaluation.
  2. Provide a draft to your appropriate administrator for review prior to presenting to the employee.
  3. Once the draft review is complete, set up a Zoom meeting with the employee. If Zoom is not an available option, set up a phone meeting.
  4. The manager emails the completed performance evaluation to the employee.
  5. Meet with the employee via Zoom (or phone) and talk through the evaluation.
  6. Route the evaluation for electronic signature.

If you can add your signature electronically, please do. If you need help adding an e-signature on a performance evaluation form, please reach out via Teams chat(opens in new window) to us (we'll respond as soon as possible during business hours) or email perf-eval@csuchico.edu. We can even route the document for signatures on your behalf, if needed.

Already have access to Adobe Sign? Great, we will accept forms routed for e-signature! (Note, you may need to "print" the file to "Microsoft PDF" to create a flat file for routing.) Before you route in the Adobe Sign main menu: 1) cc: perf-eval@csuchico.edu, so your fully-signed document will automatically go to the correct HR unit, and 2) use campus email addresses only.

Questions about this process can be forwarded to perf-eval@csuchico.edu (Labor Relations). A report of your department's performance evaluation schedule can be run by your division HR Partner or by perf-eval@csuchico.edu upon request.
