HR Knowledge 4: Performance Management / Appraisal
Thoroughly review the following video:

Based on your review, please respond to the following:
Specifically focus on the elements of performance tools (there are 6 noted). Select any 3 of the elements as being the absolute elements that must be part of your performance tools if you are in charge of developing the performance management strategy. Be sure to explain why you selected your choices.

Note: Your response to the discussion must be informative, be supported with research, and follow the requirements set by this course.Discussions and Assignments  Preparation Guide                Expectations and Requirements for:    Discussion Responses and Comments to Other Students    Grading Assignments    Avoiding Assignment Errors    Using APA and SWS                          Note: The guidance, expectations, and requirements in this document take precedence over any  items from previous courses or any other interpretations made while reading other course  information. Always consult the professor when clarity is needed.     Weekly Discussions Grading  Overall Requirement Responses to discussion topics and comments to fellow students must be specific, effective, and  qualitative. These things normally do not occur when responses are only 3-4 very small  sentences. Do not respond with personal stories like how things are done at your company. The  idea is to keep responses in academic perspective. Be thorough with all responses, yet do not  include wordy, non-relevant filler information. You must stay on point with your responses.  You are also required to use some level of research with responses to the discussion topics. It’s  up you how much you use but there must be at least one reference used. Any references used  will be directly cited (citation) in your discussion response and the reference must be properly  listed according to APA or SWS rules. If references are used but information in the post has no  citations, 2 points are automatically deducted. If neither reference nor citations are listed, 3  points will automatically be deducted. Note however that more points may be deducted if the  response has multiple statements that should have been cited. Points for Discussion Responses  There are 30 maximum points allowed for each weekly discussion with the following points  allocation: o Specific, effective, and qualitative discussion responses – Up to 24 points max. o Comments to a minimum of one other student’s response – Up to 6 points max.  Note that the discussion rubric point spread is different, so the focus is on the above spread. CRITICAL NOTE: Responses to discussion topics and comments to other students will not be  accepted after 9 am on the Monday starting the new week. No Exceptions.   Assignment Grading  The overall guidelines for assignments are located in the course information section or student  center. Be sure to review the information as it will be extremely helpful towards the overall  success of assignments. How Assignments Are Graded During this quarter grading will be largely based on information found in the Assignment Error  Avoidance Descriptions (AEAD) table. The table has two columns, one listing possible paper  content errors and one listing possible paper formatting errors. The hope is that the student will 2 use the table when writing papers to avoid as many of the listed errors as possible. The AEAD  table is seen below:   Content Issues  Missing the introduction or conclusion  section (or both) or they are ineffective, or    Formatting Issues  not meets the minimum requirement Not using APA 6, 7 or SWS properly overall. Discussing non-relevant information and/or  placing questionable information in 1 or  more sections of the paper Not enough specific or relevant discussions  and information to fully address topics in  one or more sections. Not properly citing certain information or  images/tables requiring research support  (citations and references needed). Major  issue. Difficult to verify some cited words from  their respective sources due to improper  citation settings, missing citations, or cannot  locate web or journal sources. Major issue. Did not meet minimum required page count  for content. This means additional input is  required.  Missing entire paper topic section(s) [critical  error] Using multiple quoted (or long quoted)  words from sources violating fair use rules.  Not enough synthesis or own thoughts.  Major Issue. Similarity of multiple words found from  other sources. Paper is allowed but multiple  points are deducted. Not using SWS properly regarding citations…i.e.  not placing page or paragraph numbers with  reference info instead of with citation. Missing or improperly set running heads (APA 6)  and/or page numbers and/or cover page not  properly set up Headings are missing or not properly set up per  the course paper rules.  Citations (some) missing or not properly set up  per the course paper rules (3-parts for all  citations) and not placing 3rd part with reference  for SWS All paragraphs not properly set up or too long (up  to a full page) and general layout of information  not to standard. Reference page and reference list not properly set  up according to APA, SWS, and/or course paper  rules. Not using academic/professional sources. Spacing not maintained at “double” and/or text  size and font not consistent and/or paper format  not to standard Write in active voice when possible. Use third  person point of view and avoid first person point  of view as much as possible3 Any area violated will be placed in bold text. More details will be discussed by the professor  during the course. The final score will be determined based on the number and severity of the  above items. However, there are two things that can negatively affect the final percentage you receive: (1) Late Submission Days and (2) Plagiarism.   Late Submission Days. Students who submit work after the assigned due date without  documented (or communicated) exceptional circumstances can expect a 1.428% daily score  reduction with accompanying late points in the following manner: • Assignments submitted within 7 days after the submission deadline will receive up to a  10% deduction. The actual deduction will be determined by the professor but cannot  exceed 10%. • Assignments submitted between 8 and 14 days after the submission date will receive up  to 20% deduction. The actual deduction will be determined by the professor but cannot  exceed 20%. • Assignments submitted between 15 and 21 days after the submission deadline will  receive up to a 30% deduction. The actual deduction will be determined by the professor  but cannot exceed 30%. • Assignments submitted beyond 21 days after the submission deadline will not be  accepted. The professor has the option to amend this rule based on critical student  circumstances as determined by the professor. • Assignments due during the final week of the term cannot be accepted late. Any  assignment that is not 21 days pass the due date can still be submitted and must be  submitted by 11:59 pm on the last Wednesday (week 11) of the course to receive some  credit. Plagiarism. It goes without saying that an assignment found to have a certain amount of similar,  uncited words will be “flagged” and scored a “0”. The student will have an opportunity to  resubmit the flagged work at a reduced percentage. For this course, there is no such thing as “allowable percentage of plagiarism”. However, an assignment will be considered “flagged” for  plagiarism if more than 3 “sections of words” (long sentences, paragraphs, etc.) are determined  to be from other sources for which credit has not been given. The paper will then receive a score  of “0”. As a matter of record and compliance, intentional or unintentional plagiarism offense will  be reported to Strayer University’s Office of Student Affairs. Here is what else you need to know about plagiarism:    Upon reasonable determination that a student violated the Academic Integrity policy with such  severity as to merit a more severe sanction, the instructor will impose one of the following grade  consequences, depending on the egregiousness of the offense and frequency of the occurrence  in the course, along with the detailed explanation to the student in writing regarding the offense. I. Zero grade on the assignment with an opportunity to resubmit it for up to half credit  (50%) up to 15 days after receipt of the grade with the instructors explanation (Note: 4 re-submissions of final course assignments will not be accepted after the last day of  class unless otherwise specified by the instructor); II. Zero grade on the assignment with no opportunity to revise, or III. Referral to the Office of Student Affairs for Administrative Course Failure (F**).  Avoiding or Minimizing Errors for Assignments  When reviewing assignments, the professor will key in on a few particular items. With overall formatting 1. Make sure section headings are properly set up. Do not copy and paste the paper  requirement statements but instead restructure those statements into 5 but no more  than 10 words. Headings must also be centered on page, each word begins with a capital  letter (except and, of, the, etc.), and all should be bold text (except abstract and sources).  2. Make sure all citations have at least 3 parts (author[s], year, and page or paragraph  number) regardless of if they apply to quotes or paraphrases.  3. Make sure all paragraphs are properly indented one-half inch to the right and spacing  between lines of words do not exceed double. There should be no “page-long”  paragraphs and no more than one page-long paragraphs. 4. Make sure references are properly formatted according to APA or SWS or as required by  the instructor. Ensure all required information is part of the reference and be sure the  reference page is accurately set up.  With overall content 1. Be sure to include an Abstract or Introduction section for all assignments. The headings  for either must not be bold text. Both must be at least one full paragraph of at least 8 to  10 lines or sentences of information. 2. Content is critical. Be sure to directly address all key points of the particular section’s  requirement with a good balance of research and your own thoughts. Responses must be  specific, effective, and clear. There should be no non-relevant discussion or input and  research must not dominate the responses.  3. Include a conclusion section after all input has been shared. The conclusion section must  have a heading (Conclusion) and must be bold text. Conclusion sections must be at least  one full paragraph of at least 8 to 10 lines or sentences of information. A conclusion is  not a summary, meaning it should not just mention the things you covered in the paper.  It should highlight the importance of the paper’s topics and information and make a  couple recommendations for future applications. 5 NOTE: Be sure to always review the AEAD table on page 3 above as it is a great source avoiding  errors. APA or SWS    When writing papers for this course the student may use APA 7 or Strayer Writing Standards  (SWS) to effectively write and format assignment papers. A link has been provided for SWS at the  left menu on the course home page and in the course information section. However, it is highly  recommended that you use the SWS document provided by the instructor. For APA 7  information, the student can go to… https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_style_introduction.html NOTE: When writing papers students must indicate somewhere on the cover page, which style  was used, either APA 7 or SWS to write their paper. The use of citations and references for this course not other courses, must be followed. The  primary reason for adhering to the below information is to confirm and verify cited paper  information. Citations and References Using APA  Citations Each time that information is either quoted or paraphrased from other’s work there must be a  citation used to cover such information. The citation must be placed directly before or  immediately after the quoted or paraphrased words. Directly quoted words will also be inside  quotation marks. The citation must also have at least 3 parts: (1) an author, (2) a year, and (3) a  page or paragraph number depending on the type of source. This is extremely important so that  anything you have written claiming to come from sources can be verified (including  paraphrases).  Example of Quoted Information According to Lussier and Hendon (2019, p. 53) “HR managers need to recruit, select, train, and  interact with employees differently based on different organizational strategies.” Notice that  quoted information has quotation marks, and the citation was placed before the quote and has 3  parts (author, year, and page number). Example of Paraphrased Information Based on Above Quote HR must be aware of differences in company strategies so that they recruit, train, and interact  appropriately with all types of employees (Lussier & Hendon, 2019, p. 53). This is paraphrased  input from the above quoted statement. Note that paraphrased information does not require 6 quotation marks, but the citation still has 3 parts, and this time came after the paraphrased  words. NOTE: In either of the examples above or any other “borrowed” information you must have 3  parts to the citations, and you may place the citations directly before or immediately after the  sourced words (your choice). If there are not 3 parts to the citations it makes it difficult to locate  the information from the reference source. Each time a citation is missing all 3 parts, points will  be deducted from assignments. References Only quality references may be used for all assignments. Avoid using non-quality information or  web sites. When listing references on the assignment reference page follow general APA rules  for how to list the reference. Example Book Reference and Quality Web site Reference Book Mathis, R. L., Jackson, J. H., & Valentine, S. R. (2015). Human resource management (15th ed.).  Stamford, CT: Cengage Learning. Acceptable Web site Reference Sammer, J. (2019). Pay equity shines spotlight on compensation alignment. Retrieved from the  Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) web site at  https://www.shrm.org/ResourcesAndTools/hr-topics/compensation/Pages/pay-equity-shines spotlight-on-compensation-alignment.aspx If you use an article or paper from a web site, Ebsco Host, research.strayer.edu, or any other  journal-type organization, you must include “retrieved from” information when listing the  reference. Example You use the following reference for information in your paper: Rees, C & Edwards, T. (2009). Management strategies and HR in international mergers:  Choice, constraints, and pragmatism. Human Resource Management Journal. 2009, Vol.  19(1), p24-39. 16p. 1 Chart. DOI: 10.1111/j.1748-8583.2008.00087.x. Same reference above but you must now include the retrieved from link where you obtained the  source and thus the reference reads:7 Rees, C & Edwards, T. (2009). Management strategies and HR in international mergers:  Choice, constraints, and pragmatism. Human Resource Management Journal. 2009, Vol.  19(1), p24-39. 16p. 1 Chart. DOI: 10.1111/j.1748-8583.2008.00087.x. Retrieved from  https://eds-b-ebscohost com.libdatab.strayer.edu/eds/pdfviewer/pdfviewer?vid=6&sid=6d8b3b11-b4c6-4cef a520-c53647eb3956%40sdc-v-sessmgr02 Citations and References Using SWS  If students decide to use SWS for citations and references, these items are set up differently  from APA 7. Students must click the Strayer Writing Standards link in the left menu on the course  information page. Students can also go to  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSvmYamJpLX5DN_56vyQqN4VzitwJU-9r to review the  SWS support videos. NOTE: It is highly recommended to follow the guidelines below and from the SWS document  provided by the instructor in the course. SWS Citations Citations when using SWS are only required to have the last name of the author and the number  of the reference as listed on the reference page. Ex: Lussier (1) or (Lussier, 1). This means that  the information you are citing in your paper came from the Lussier textbook and that textbook is  the first reference listed on your reference page. Just because no page number needs to be with  the citation does not mean that it is not needed. It is now placed with the reference information. References If your reference used is a book, journal article, or any source that has page numbers, you are  required to place the page number of the in-text citation as part of the reference on the  reference page. For example, take this quote… According to Lussier (1) “HR managers need to recruit, select, train, and interact with employees  differently based on different organizational strategies.” The quote is actually on page 53 of the  Lussier textbook, and although the page number no longer has to be with the citation in the  body of the paper when using SWS, it does have to show up as part of the reference. Here’s how the reference looks on the reference page: 1. Robert N. Lussier. 2019. Human Resource management: Functions, applications, and skill  development. 3rd Ed. [p. 53]. Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publications. If your reference is a website source, instead of a page number to show where the information  comes from, there must be a paragraph or section number (your preference on what you call it).8     Finally…  If more clarification is needed for any of the above information in this document, contact the  professor immediately with questions. All course assignments will be reviewed based on the  guidance presented in this document.9
