After a review ends and the review reports are shared, this is only when the fun part starts. Here you will find out how to read, understand, find information, and make use of your review report.
The report score legend
There are three possible score bars.
Average Score - This score includes all feedback averaged into one score per topic/question (excludes self-assessment ratings).
Manager's Score - This score is based on the rating or response from the feedback recipient's direct manager.
Self-assessment - This score is based on the rating or response from the feedback recipient who completed the self-evaluation.
Whose feedback will I find in the review report?
Depending on the type of review, the review report may have feedback responses from:
- a self-evaluation.
- a manager's review.
- a peer's review.
- a direct report's review
- Or a combination of some or all four.
Locate what peers were selected to give you feedback at the top of the report "Selected reviewers"
Note: Simply because a colleague was selected to give you feedback, does not mean they actually completed or submitted feedback responses in the review.
What is the anonymity of the review report?
Your company will have set policies around the anonymity of the feedback exchanged in this review. Based on how your company administrators set the anonymity of the review report you may or may not see the name of the feedback reviewer. To check go to:
- The Reviews page.
- Find the review.
- Open the Summary page.
- Scroll to the Report sharing section.
- View the anonymity of the shared reports.
Reacting and responding to feedback in a report
Similar to real-time feedback, a feedback recipient can also react or respond to feedback received in a review report. Learn how to do so here.
Sharing or downloading a report
On the upper right of your review report, there will be two options to download or share your review report.
Select 'Download report' and a pop-up window will notify you that the PDF file is being prepared, once the report has been generated, you will be able to download the PDF file.
Note: If it takes longer to generate the PDF file, you can choose to have it sent to your email.
Note: Once a report has been shared it cannot be unshared.
Notes and take-aways
On the right side of your review report, there will be a section called Notes and take-aways. Here you can write down your lessons learned, next steps and your action plan. You can also refer back to them anytime in the future.
Summary and next steps give you the ability to write key takeaways from the review process and the feedback you received. Only the feedback recipient and their direct manager can write comments in this section.
Note: The comments entered here will be visible to any colleague that has access to the report.
