This 360 appraisal system, available through the Psytech online system, makes it easy and convenient to administer your 360 degree appraisal project. The system is completely customisable to your own competencies, or you can use Psytech 's competency model and select the behavioural rating items you would like to use. Each project requires responses from the person being rated, and at lest one other rater. The system allows you to invite participants by email to complete the online appraisal. Once the appraisals have been completed, the system collates the data and generates a detailed report. These user friendly reports, compare responses from all raters, and are generated in an instant. These reports can be made anonymous so that raters cannot be identified. A cost effective way of implementing 360 appraisal in-house, a single credit is used PER rater.

 Use of the 360 degree system for validation studies

 

The 360 degree system is particularly suited to in-house validation studies. The ratings obtained by the system can be used as a criterion in concurrent or predictive validation studies, and also for determining predictive bias. This is particularly important with regard to the requirements of the Employment Equity Act regarding test use. If Psytech tests are used in such a validation or bias study, we are prepared to set up and run the 360 degree project for you at no cost to the test user, and also to do the statistical analysis.
