LCIA-360° Feedback Rater Guide

How to guide for using multisource feedback tools

360° Rater Guide

The LCIA-360° feedback rater guide was designed to provide information on how 360° assessments (a.k.a. multisource feedback tools) function. 360° tools are among the most popular methods of evaluating employee performance and developmental needs. 360° assessments help evaluate the qualities of employees for character, knowledge, skills, abilities, and performance. These reviews can help employees identify strengths and opportunities for future development.

What makes a 360° assessment different from other employee evaluation tools is the use of multiple raters. Traditional approaches to employee evaluation only consider the input of an employee’s direct supervisor.

In contrast, a 360° assessment collects ratings from the employee as well as from multiple people who have different relationships with this employee. Some of the relationships include supervisors, colleagues, and direct/indirect reports. Raters provide ratings for the target employee, and are also asked to provide written comments or narrative feedback to enrich their ratings. This process provides a more comprehensive picture of the employee’s strengths and developmental opportunities.

The LCIA-360° rater guide will provide you with information to:

  • Explain how 360° assessments differ from traditional employee evaluations
  • Define the dimensions of character assessed by the LCIA-360°
