This current review period covers Jan. 1, 2023 - Dec. 31, 2023.

To complete your review go to: Employee Self-service>My Career>Performance Review>Create New Review. 

You can find a handy STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE here!

You will comment on all universal competencies and your accomplishments and goals.

You will also set new goals for the upcoming year. 

Your review should include goals for Jan. 1, 2024 - Dec. 31, 2024. We suggest three to four goals. Your department may have specific goal requirements, so check with your supervisor for any additional guidance.

HERE is a simple template! You can use this document, or create your own! 

For this review, the University of Iowa is changing one of the universal competencies used during performance reviews. What was the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion competency will change to Welcoming and Respectful Environment.

This change aligns UI with a recommendation from the Board of Regents’ DEI Study Group report while supporting the goals of the 2022-2027 Strategic Plan.

Competencies found on annual review forms include:

  • Collaboration and positive impact
  • Service excellence and customer focus
  • Welcoming and respectful environment

Welcome to the Provost family! 

For this year's performance review, if you began before the review dates, you still will complete a review. However, you will focus primarily on goal setting for the upcoming year. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions! 

The supervisor launches the form for Merit employees by clicking the Create New Review button on the left side of the page. Merit employees do not have access to the performance tool until the acknowledgement step.

Merit employees should complete a Self Assessment, then share with their supervisor prior to the review. 

Once in the system, supervisors will enter comments related to Universal Competencies, Employee Goals & Accomplishments and Supervisor Comments. Supervisors can also attach the employee's self-review, and any other additional documentation. 

When rating Merit staff, you must use one of the five descriptors (Do not use the "No Rating" option.). 

Then, supervisors will send the review to their employees and the employee signs the form.
