Review 1.0 Page 1 User's Guide

This program is a computerized system to rate an employee based
on his score in several topics. Those topics range in variety,
from quality and quantity of performance to attendance and

This system was developed because most commonly used systems
distribute the importance of all topics rated (e.g. Knowledge
and Physical Condition) equally, where a top score in
Knowledge of job should contribute to the employee's
performance score more than a top score in Physical Condition

The user of this program will evaluate employees under his
supervision in sixteen different topics. The compiled
score for an employee in those topics will make up his final

Who should use this program?

o If you are a supervisor or the personnel officer in a
company that has not yet established a standard for
performance evaluation.

o If you are currently unhappy with your present system this
system could be an improvement. We also offer a customized
version of this program that is altered to meet your

o If you are under an obligation to use your company's
standard system, Review can be a cross reference system.

Before you start the review

This program should be completed with impartiality and sober
judgment. When evaluating the employee, be neutral and fair.
Concentrate on the employee, his responsibilities, and his
performance. Don't make personal feelings be a part of judging.

When the program is run and completed, a hard copy should
remain as a permanent record of the employee's contribution to
the company. Therefore, give yourself enough time to cover all
topics unbiasedly.

Getting Started, and Some Hints

First, make a backup copy of your Review disk, or program
files (Check your D.O.S. manual on how you can format and copy
a disk).

To start Review, at the disk prompt (e.g. A>) where
is, type review .

Read the opening title screen, then hit any key to move on.

The next screen will display a brief description and a bar
chart of all the topics to be reviewed.

On the bottom of the screen, you will be asked to type either
S , to start the program, or P to print a form
you use to register your copy of Review, and answer a compact

If you choose to start ( S ), first, you will be
prompted for some personnel data (e.g. Name, Payroll #, etc.).

For versatility purposes, the program does not check your
personnel data. For example:
If Date Hired is 11/23/1984, when prompted, you can use any
format for the date. The date, and all other data will be
printed exactly the way they're entered.

If some of the data you are prompted for does not apply to
your company, simply hit to skip them.

After you enter all the personnel data, hit Y , to
continue, or hit N , to re-enter the data if you've
made a mistake.

From this point, all your options can be chosen from clear
screen prompts.

Keep this manual handy when filling out the Review. It will
give you a little more detailed description of the topics.

Scoring system

A scale of one to five (1 - 5) is used to rate each topic:

5 = Excellent - Admirable Effort
4 = Above Average - Surpasses Expectations
3 = Average - Meets Expectations
2 = Below Average - Below Expectations
1 = Unsatisfactory - Not Acceptable

For each topic, the program will ask your input of a value of
1 - 5. To make this program more flexible, fractions (e.g.
3.75) are supported for maximum accuracy.

The final score will determine the employee's rating:

85-100 = Excellent - Admirable Effort
70-84 = Above Average - Surpasses Expectations
55-69 = Average - Meets Expectations
40-54 = Below Average - Below Expectations
Under 40 = Unsatisfactory - Not Acceptable
