360º evaluations (multi-source) and some excellent background material

A paper recently published by three academics, in the Consulting Psychology Journal: Practice and Research (2005), 57, 196-209 can answer every question imaginable about this method of assessment.

Drawing on 28 published papers, the three authors arranged their findings under 27 questions. The questions include “Does it work?,” “Why does it work?,” and “How should they be used?.” Some of the improvements researchers have recorded seem more due to regression to the mean than to the evaluations.

Law departments should include 360 degree evaluations in their personnel arsenal.
