Abstract

Evaluation can be defined as the process through which information and data are collected in order to reach decisions concerning the improvement of staff or the identification of the most effective personnel. It is important to realize that from the day we are born till the end of our lives we go through a series of evaluations and judgments both at the personal and at the professional levels. Evaluations sometimes aim at improving us and at other times aim at ranking or providing us with professional rewards. Evaluations can also be used to impose sanctions. Stemming from the above, it is important to provide some answers to the basic question of why it is necessary to carry out evaluation.
