The project involved the development and evaluation of a prototype individual

performance measurement system. The system was designed to be used on research

personnel in a technical consulting firm.

developed based on Behavioral Observation Scales and the Critical Incident Technique.

The data necessary to form the prototype was gathered through the use of Nominal Group

Technique sessions. The prototype was then evaluated by research personnel in a two

were useful to be implemented in the company's current performance appraisal system

A description of the prototype system research, development and evaluation is
