HRM | BARS - Graphic Rating Scale in performance appraisals

Why is a BARS potentially superior to a graphic rating scale for use in performance appraisals?

  1. The graphic rating scale simply asks a supervisor to rate an employee on an established set of criteria, such as quantity of work or attitude toward work. This leaves a lot of room for subjectivity and debate.

    The behaviorally anchored rating scale asks the supervisor to rate the employee on specific behaviors that had been identified as positively or negatively affecting performance in a given job.

    This is a more specific appraisal approach and leaves less room for debate and disagreement.
