Alternation Ranking Method

Alternation ranking method- Ranking employees from best to worst on a particular trait, choosing highest, then lowest, until all are ranked. It is usually easier to distinguish between the worst and best employees. First, list all subordinates to be rated, and then cross out the names of any not known well enough to rank. Then, on a form, indicate the employee who is the highest on the characteristic being measured and the one who is the lowest. Then choose the next highest and the next lowest, alternating between highest and lowest until all employees have been ranked.
