eValuations Information

East Tennessee State University has a firm commitment to performance evaluation of University personnel, whatever their category and level, through the medium of a formalized system. The primary purpose of such evaluation is to assist personnel in professional development and in achieving University goals. The procedures addressed here apply to every full-time, non-faculty University employee. Faculty evaluation is addressed under a separate program.

For newly hired full-time and part-time non-faculty employees, a Probationary Evaluation will be performed in the fifth month of their six-month probationary period. Annual Performance Evaluations are performed for all regular full-time and regular part-time (non-faculty) employees more than six months of service as of March 1 of each calendar year. Employees still under probation (less than six months of service) as of March 1 will not receive an annual evaluation.

Probationary and annual evaluations for university staff are conducted through the electronic eValuations system. eValuations allows supervisors and employees to view and complete job evaluations on-line, make comments about the evaluation, and submit the evaluations electronically through the appropriate signatory chain to Human Resources. eValuations also stores historical evaluations so that employees and supervisors will always have access to past evaluations. Temporary employees, graduate assistants and student workers are not evaluated through this system.
