Abstract

This project examines the process for performance appraisal of resident assistant paraprofessionals employed by the Department of Student Housing and Food Services, Office of Student Affairs and Services, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. The purpose of this project is to determine if the stated objectives of the performance appraisal process for paraprofessionals are consistent with the current literature examined. The following aspects of the appraisal system are evaluated: (1) preparation for appraisal; (2) data collection; (3) reporting and follow-up; (4) evaluation of the policy; and (5) impact of the process. -- Through the analysis of information provided by the Residence Life Office of Student Housing and a review of corresponding mission statements and objectives, a number of conclusions were reached. First, the present performance appraisal system is meeting its stated objective of assisting the administration in its responsibility for ensuring that resident assistants are performing the tasks assigned. Secondly, it was evidenced by data reviewed that the performance appraisal process presently utilized is effective. Thirdly, there are indications that personal development is a goal of the evaluation process utilized. -- Overall, the performance appraisal process is meeting its intended objectives. The process may, however, warrant further development with respect to the incorporation of student development objectives.
