6-1 small group discussion: evidence or judgment?
This is a group activity. For more information on groups, please see About Group Work.
For this discussion, your instructor will divide the class into groups of four to five students. Place yourself in the role of an employee named Tyler Cahill, whose annual evaluation has just been completed. As you review the annual performance evaluation, you believe that it was partly based on judgment and not evidence. However, you realize there are some gaps in your performance. Up to this point, you felt like you had a good working relationship with your manager.
For your initial post, answer the following questions based on the Annual Performance Evaluation document.
What are some examples in the performance evaluation document that are based on judgment and not evidence? In a forthcoming meeting with your manager, what is your plan to address that you believe part of the evaluation was not based on evidence? How will you explain to your manager why it is important for a manager and employee to agree on performance gaps based on evidence? Use the information from the readings for this module to support your plan.
