What Is the Value of a Documentation Log?

The Value of the Documentation Log: Enhancing Evaluation with Comprehensive Performance Evidence

Documentation logs provide valuable and insightful evidence of an employee’s performance by complementing other data sources. They offer a fuller, fairer, and more comprehensive view of performance, enriching the dialogue between the employee and evaluator. These logs include naturally occurring artifacts and written reflections, providing insights into the rationale for artifact selection and how it demonstrates performance standards. Documentation logs allow for self-reflection, showcase quality work, and support two-way collaborative interactions. They also ensure that artifacts align with performance standards, illustrating the employee's growth throughout the school year.
