Explanation of Ratings

   EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS: “The employee met all and exceeded or far exceeded most
   of the established performance expectations.” This rating should be used only to recognize
   performance that is clearly above performance expectations. The key words here are “met
   all” and “exceeded most.”

   MEETS EXPECTATIONS: “Employee met all or most of the established performance
   expectations. Employee is performing at the expected level.” Applied to a specific
   responsibility means that all or most of the performance expectations associated with that
   responsibility have been satisfactorily carried out.

   NEEDS IMPROVEMENT: “Employee did not meet established performance expectations.
   In order for employee to perform at the expected level, improvement is needed.” A “Needs
   Improvement” rating of the annual performance evaluation requires that a plan for
   remediation be included in your professional development activities. This plan will be
   prepared jointly by the evaluator and you and will be reviewed by a Dean of Instruction &
   Vice President of Academic Affairs.

   Overall Rating:
                      SATISFACTORY (Employee met all or most performance expectations.)

                      UNSATISFACTORY (Performance does not meet expectations.)
