Abstract : The research on performance appraisal interviews (PAI) is reviewed and critiqued. Factors affecting superior and subordinate reactions to the interview include (1) the structure of the PAI (purpose, frequency, source of appraisal, and rating format); (2) the content of the PAI (feedback sign), specificity, and performance attributions); (3) goal setting in the PAI; and (4) the process of the PAI (participation level and supervisor supportiveness). Suggestions for designing effective PAIs are given. Keywords: Performance evaluation; Feedback; Evaluation; Interview; Manpower; Performance(human).
