2000+ Performance Review Phrases by Skill: The Complete List [Performance Feedback Examples]

Performance reviews (“performance evaluations”, “performance feedback”, “performance appraisals”) are a common process used in many organizations to evaluate the performance of an employee. A review should be conducted professionally, meaning that both the person conducting the review and the person receiving it should maintain a professional attitude during the process.

Performance feedback can be an opportunity for employees to receive constructive criticism and guidance for their future growth. However, performance reviews can also be stressful and make employees feel defensive if they are not receiving positive feedback, so in order to make sure that performance reviews are as productive as possible, it is important to provide positive feedback along with constructive criticism so that employees know what they need to work on in order to improve their skills.

Besides the standard question “Did the employee meet the expectations set for their position?”, employee performance evaluation comments can include answers to the questions such as “In what ways did this individual contribute to the success of their team?” and “What could this employee do to improve their performance?”.

Performance feedback is important because it helps employees understand their strengths and weaknesses and how they can improve their work performance in the future.

We created the most complete list of performance review examples for different skills which you will find below. Follow the link under each section to open the full list of phrases for that particular skill set.

ProsperForms is a cloud solution to dramatically reduce the time you spend creating reports

  1. Make reporting easier with auto-fill: Fields such as date, name, report type, and formatting are inserted automatically by software.
  2. Consolidate reports automatically: Reports created by your team members can be consolidated easily.
  3. Save time with auto-layout: No need to spend hours in Word or Excel perfecting the report’s layout because it exports your updates into a beautifully crafted file with a couple of clicks.
  4. Peace of mind with auto-reminders: No one forgets to submit their reports because ProsperForms automatically sends timely reminders according to the schedule you chose.
  5. Decrease time and effort spent on monthly, quarterly, and yearly reporting thanks to powerful filtering and export features.
  6. Quick sharing: Reports can be either - exported to files and printed, or sent by email; - shared with the manager online (in real time); - optionally shared online as team-wide status reports, i.e., all team members share their progress with each other to spend less time on meetings.

How to configure reports on ProsperForms:

Step 1:
  • Choose a form (100+ forms available) — customize our preset forms or easily create a new form in minutes.
  • Setup reminders if you want your team members to receive automatic reminders when their reports are due.
  • Configure who will submit reports by choosing the “Participants” tab.
Step 2: Click the "Open Submission Form" button to fill in and submit the report. Data such as the report type, date and name will be added automatically. As soon as a new report is added, participants with “View” rights can view it in real time.

Step 3 (Optional): Generate a report and export it to PDF. (Skip this step if you share status reports online and don’t print them.)

Click “Generate Report”.
