Annex E - Scottish Government, Agencies and Other Bodies - Staff appraisal markings

The tables in this Annex show the performance appraisal markings broken down by diversity characteristics for Scottish Government staff who were due an appraisal for the period 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2014.

Coverage

Along with the core Scottish Government, the statistics in this annex include the following public bodies: Accountant in Bankruptcy, Advocate General for Scotland, British Irish Council, Courts Tribunals, Court of Lord Lyon, Crofting Commission, Disclosure Scotland, Education Scotland, HMI Constabulary, HMI Prisons, Judicial Appointments Board for Scotland, Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland, Mental Welfare Commission, National Records of Scotland, Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, Office of the Scottish Road Works Commissioner, Parole Board, Police Investigations & Review Commissioner, Risk Management Authority, Scotland Office, Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission, Scottish Housing Regulator, Scottish Law Commission, Scottish Public Pensions Agency, Student Awards Agency for Scotland, Transport Scotland.

Appraisal markings

For the purposes of this report, the markings have been grouped into the following four categories:

  • Exceptional
  • Highly effective
  • Effective and below - markings of 'effective', 'partly effective', and 'not effective'
  • No marking - staff who were due an appraisal but have had no marking recorded on the HR system.

There were 16 members of staff who achieved a below effective performance marking in 2013-14. This number is too small to allow breakdowns by most protected characteristics. Below effective markings have therefore been grouped with 'effective' in this report.

Disclosure control

To avoid the possible disclosure of information about individual members of staff, data suppression has been applied to counts of less than 5 (and the corresponding percentage value). In some cases, secondary data suppression has been necessary to prevent the calculation of suppressed values by differencing. Suppressed values are shown as an asterisk (*). Where possible, data suppression has been avoided by grouping categories in some manner. Where the only small counts in a table refer to the 'prefer not to say' category, no data suppression is done. Where data suppression has been applied in any table an explanatory note is provided.

Data source

The tables in this workbook were compiled from data held on the Scottish Government HR system. Information on the protected characteristics (age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability status, marital/civil partnership status, and religion or belief) is provided by the employee on a voluntary basis. For some protected characteristics (for example, age and gender) the information held is complete or very nearly complete, while the information held for other characteristics is less well populated.
