Performance Appraisal Materials:

SCSE performance appraisals for Civil Service, AFSCME, Teamsters, and Academic P&As, including post-docs, are underway.

This year, UMD is using the University of Minnesota's Performance Appraisal Tool, also known as PAT.  PAT is a secure online performance evaluation tool designed to support staff and supervisors in a simplified performance management process. If you have questions on the review process, be sure to check with your supervisor and review the details below. 

Employee Access

  • You can used this employee access link to log in to PAT anytime to review and update your goals.
  • During the performance evaluation phase, you will receive an email when it's time to enter your input into the evaluation form.
  • Follow this guide or video for help navigating PAT.

Supervisor Access

  • You can log into PAT at anytime to work with your employees to review and update their goals using this supervisor link.
  • During the evaluation phase, you will receive an email from PAT once an employee has submitted their input.
  • Although you have access to set up evaluations in PAT, your local PAT Administrator will likely launch all of the reviews for your college/unit.
  • Follow this guide or video for help navigating PAT.
