Abstract:

This theoretical paper begins by documenting the severity and pervasiveness of disagreements between superior and self assessments of work performance. To understand this disagreement, theoretical and applied work on self assessment is needed, similar to the work on superior cognitive processes during rating which has been occuring for several years. This paper draws on several theories to explain the self evaluation process and contrast it to the process used by superiors. A model of self evaluation, future research needs, and some suggestions for improving agreement are presented.
