A person has the following ratings in a section of a form:
- 2 above expectations,
- 1 meets expectations.
Yet the section averages out to Meets Expectations. How could this happen?
- Workforce Planning and Analytics
- Situations like this have their origin in how the ratings scale is set up in the background. Each rating that is assigned, has a numeric value that operates as part of a equation in the background. So "Meets Expectations" translates into a numeric value; every other rating in the section does as well, and it is subsequently totaled and averaged.
- The ratings scale for the above situation may appear as:
0.0->.99= Needs Improvement
1.0->1.9= Meets Expectations
2.0 -> 2.9 = Above Expectations
- Each score rounds DOWN to the nearest whole number. So if the average falls into the range of 1.0 to 1.99, this is considered a score of 1. Two ratings of Above Executions total to a score of 4, plus one Meets Expectations totals to 5. When that is averaged by dividing that by 3, the total is 1.66.
Here it is again:
2 + 2 + 1 = 5
5/3 = 1.66
- So that is how this person's total section rating got rounded down in this instance. If this is not desired, then SuccessFactors and the necessary HR parties should discuss a different scale.
