Performance Appraisal Tool

The Performance Appraisal Tool (PAT) is a secure on-line employee appraisal. PAT is designed to engage supervisors and staff in a meaningful two-way performance appraisal process. Annual appraisals are also required under University policy.

 PAT is approved for use with AHC civil service, bargaining unit and P&A staff. Please check with your local HR representative and view the implementation plan for your college, school or unit below.

 (NOTE: Will begin January 1)

How do I access PAT?

For supervisors and administrative access

Log into PAT with your x.500.

For employee self assessment access

Log into PAT with your x.500

  • You will NOT have access before your supervisor successfully sets up your appraisal
  • You will receive an email from PAT once your supervisor has successfully set up your appraisal
  • If you lost the email, you can access your self assessment by logging into PAT with your x.500

How do I use PAT?


Note: Audio begins about 15 minutes into the presentation.




The School of Dentistry strongly encourages the use of Performance Appraisal Tool for Civil Service and Bargaining Unit positions. It may also be used with P&A positions. Those using the PAT system will not need to forward hard copies of the review to the Human Resources Office.
