Potential Rater Errors (continued)

  • First impression effect - allowing initial evaluations of employees to overshadow their actual performance.
  • Central tendency effect - placing every employee's performance "safely" in the middle of the rating scale.
  • Negative/positive leniency effect - assigning extremely low or high ratings across the evaluation form.
