Complete Assignment questions:
For the first two questions, read the case “Minimizing Distortions in Performance Data at Expert Engineering, Inc.” on page 193 of the course textbook and think about objective measures, rater biases, and appropriate methods than can mitigate these issues. Answer the following:
Provide a detailed discussion of the intentional rating distortion factors that may come into play in this situation.
Evaluate the kinds of analytical tools and interventions you could implement to minimize intentional rating distortion, and its reasons, that you have described. What do you recommend and why?
Prepare responses to other chapter topic questions:
Describe current features of your organization’s own appraisal forms (or one chosen as a reference) and compare the system used against the textbook’s description of desirable features of appraisal forms. What improvements would you recommend and why?
Provide a recommendation of a combination of different methods of performance data that could be used to arrive at an overall score for each person being rated in your organization (or one chosen as a reference point). Explain the comprehensive system you have recommended and why you have chosen this combination of tools. Support your answer with research.
