Advantage of essay evaluation form is that it gives a chance for the evaluator to provide detailed comment regarding the performance of the employee. However, the detailed comments increase the chance of biased evaluation without properly projecting actual performance of the employee. In addition, it is possible that a hurried evaluator will not properly provide all the details regarding employee performance.
