Supervisors will evaluate Represented and Non-Represented staff using the same 5-level rating scale at the Davis Campus and at UC Davis Health

Please familiarize yourself with the performance appraisal ratings in effect for the 2019-2020 employee appraisal cycle:

  • Exceptional: Performance far exceeded expectations
  • Exceeded Expectations: Performance consistently exceeded expectations
  • Fully Achieved Expectations: Fully achieved and at times may have exceeded expectations
  • Some Expectations Met: Performance occasionally met expectations but was inconsistent
  • Expectations Not Met: Immediate improvement is needed

Please Note: Nurses at UC Davis Health and Police Officers Will Not use the 5-level rating scale. They will continue using their existing rating scales.

Understanding the 5-Level Rating Scale
The rating that an employee receives is meant to reflect their performance over the appraisal period, as measured by:

  • Achievements and performance of key job functions
  • Progress in achieving goals
  • Behavior
