Behaviourally Anchored Rating Scale (BARS)


The Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scale (also referred to as BARS), is another kind of appraisal which requires employers to list down aspects of a job and help them gather some critical behaviors; this term was developed to neutralize the subjectivity in using basic rating scale to judge performance. BARS employees can easily differentiate between successful and unsuccessful performance. 

The Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scale is usually presented vertically with scale points which range from five to nine; it has been created to bring benefits of both quantitative and qualitative data to the employee appraisal process.
