Traditional versus computerized performance appraisal utilizing individual itme presentation as a means of reducing rater error
The individual presentation of performance appraisal items through the use of a computerized rating instrument is designed to reduce the amount of error committed by raters. This presentation mode is compared with a traditional paper and pencil performance appraisal format. Subjects were 34 undergraduates from the University of Central Florida. A three-way ANOVA was used to determine the differences between the rating instruments. A multimethod - multitrait design was utilized to analyze the correlations between the target skills in both versions. Although the results were largely unsupportive of the hypotheses, trends do exist in the data to warrant further study along these lines.
