Evaluation Period: The evaluation period covered in this appraisal cycle is January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012.

Training Resources: Employees may view the online training videos available in ESO's Performance Management webpage. There, you may also find other eAppraisal-related resources, such as the eAppraisal Manual, which includes a quick reference guide with instructions for navigating through the process, as well as other links to access the annual and probationary eAppraisal processes.

Access from Home: If you plan to access eAppraisal from home, you MUST use the VPN utility provided by UHD with your high speed internet access (DSL or cable).

Pop-Up Blocker: You must turn off all pop-up blocker software or allow the eAppraisal site (appraisal.uhd.edu) to be exempt from any pop-up blocker because eAppraisal uses pop-up windows. To turn off pop-up blocker in Internet Explorer 6: Select Tools, Pop-up Blocker, and then select Turn Off Pop-up Blocker. You may also setup the IE Pop-Up Blocker so that it only allows pop-ups from UHD web sites including eAppraisal. You must also disable pop-up blockers from other site toolbars such as Yahoo and Google or allow the eAppraisal site as an allowed site.

Technical Requirements: For technical assistance, please contact the UHD Help Desk at x-3000.

Questions/Assistance: For questions or assistance with eAppraisal, you may contact Tomas Turrubiates at x-8263 or Tony Nguyen at x-5332.
