Please note this is a legacy feature. To read about the improved performance management features new to Totara 13 please see the Performance page.
The appraisal system within Totara allows managers and appraisers to capture, evaluate and facilitate discussion on professional and personal development of staff across the organisation.
Courses, programs, certifications, competencies and learning objectives from an individual’s learning plan can be automatically pulled into an appraisal form to evaluate formal and informal learning undertaken both internally and externally to the system.
With a variety of configurable and customisable question types including multi-choice, custom scales, set text and images alongside workflows for Learners, managers, managers' managers and an appointed appraiser, the appraisals system offers an automated alternative to paper-based forms.
Learn more and try it for yourself on the Appraisals course in the Totara Academy.
If you have both multitenancy and tenant isolation enabled then appraisals will not be available for your site's users.
The Totara Academy has a whole course dedicated to using Appraisals in Totara. Here you can learn more on how to use the tool, see best practice, and give it a go yourself.
