Tips for Writing an Effective Performance Appraisal

  1. Focus on yourself and your greatest accomplishments.
  2. Take the time to reflect on your most enjoyable work.
  3. If you’re involved in DWN or another Collective Resource Group, be sure to mention it. Whether you volunteer or attend training events, you are taking steps to grow your professional skills and self.
  4. Use an active voice.
  5. Take credit for your accomplishments. Use “I” rather than “we” and eliminate the word “just.”
  6. Project a confident tone by removing phrases like “I feel” or “I believe.”
  7. Have a trusted coworker or friend proof-read your PA before you submit.
