Appraisals for Performance Management

Appraisals for Performance Management

There are a variety of factors that can affect the overall performance rating of an individual. Aguinis (2013) defines two methods — 1) judgmental and 2) mechanical — for reaching an overall score and states that the mechanical approach is preferable in most cases, particularly if performance objectives are not weighted. Go to pages 162-163 in your textbook and review Case Study 6-2: Judgmental and Mechanical Methods of Assigning Overall Performance Score at The Daily Planet. Discuss the implications of the judgmental and mechanical methods of assigning performance scores.
