Definition Behavioral Observation Scales (BOS). Description.


Behavioral Observation Scales (BOS) is a performance appraisal technique for assessing the performance of an employee as part of an appraisal process. The BOS technique involves a process of identifying the key tasks for a job. Unlike the similar Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales, the BOS technique evaluates employees according to how frequently they exhibit the required behavior for excellent performance.


The various measures of behaviors can be weighted to reflect the relative significance of the measurement for the job. The (weighted) scores for each of the observed behaviors are added up to produce the overall job performance score.
