If a person wishes to engender self-improvement, he or she must seek an authentic conversation with the self. With SELFIE, you can use the lens of your hearts to see the state of your souls.
A self‐evaluation is a great opportunity for everybody to honestly and objectively consider and document their status.
Properly conducting a self‐evaluation can make the difference between a meaningful evaluation and one that is less effective.
A self‐evaluation is your thoughtful and considered written review of your performance during the evaluation cycle. It involves rating established goals, competencies, and overall performance.
When you self‐assess, you become an active participant in your own evaluation. Your involvement enables you to honestly assess your strengths and also areas you need to improve. Self‐evaluation also serves to increase commitment to goal setting/achievement, competency development, and career planning.
Time: Allow sufficient time to complete the self‐evaluation.
Quiet: Conduct the self‐evaluation in a quiet place without interruptions so you can devote your full attention and reflection to the process.
Relax: Try to relax and reflect upon individual goals, experiences, and incidents. No one is perfect, and it is very likely that you will recall both good and bad experiences.
The purpose of the evaluation process is to highlight strengths, correct performance weaknesses, emotional wellness and develop unused skills and abilities. In order to do this, you must be willing to recognize areas that need improvement or development.
Don't forget about achievements made early on in the evaluation period.
Be objective. It's awfully tempting to give yourself high marks across the board, but it's a little unlikely that you've done everything right. Instead of evaluating yourself based on how you wished you’d performed, offer the results and quantify them as much as possible by using facts, figures, and specific dates.
- Objectivity: free from subjective judgement regarding the trait or potentiality to be measured and evaluated.
- Reliability: consistent and trustworthy results
- Validity: measures what it intends to measure.
- Norms: gives a picture of average standard of a particular sample in a particular aspect.
- Practicability: friendly to apply and fun to accomplish.
