Evachi replied on Hello Team, I am confused about the proper tense for appraisal writing and hope that you would kindly give me some advice. My previous boss told me that present tense should be used for general description of appraisee's performance even if the appraisal period was in the past. However, my present boss considered that past tense should be used under all circumstances for past appraisal period. Allow me to provide some sentences in question: 1. "When she was asigned of ad hoc duties, she completed the tasks timely with good quality of output." While it happened during the appraisal period, can it be interpreted as a general description of the appraisee's performance (because the description is also true to her present performance) and hence present tense be used? 2. "Miss Chan is a bright officer. She has good knowledge about her work." Is present tense the correct tense be used for comment on appraisee in an appraisal report? Thanks a lot! Evachi replied on Thks a lot for the prompt reply, Peter! Jarek_O replied on Hi Team, We ______ anything quite so extraordinary in our lives. Why "never saw" is marked as a wrong answer? The correct one "had never seen" seems to me a bit out of the context as I am not sure if this happens in the past or the present. Kirk replied on Hello Jarek_O, Strictly speaking, you could use the past simple in this sentence. This kind of sentence, however, is usually used to tell the story of how you witnessed an extraordinary event. In this use, since you're referring to a past event from a past perspective, the past perfect is nearly always the tense you see or hear used in it. All the best, Vickyy Bhardwaj replied on Which one is correct? or, I would have changed the plan , if I knew it. Peter M replied on Hello Vickyy Bhardwaj, Grammatically speaking, both of these are possible, depending on the context. If you say 'had known' then you are describing a situation in the past which was not true: I would have changed the plan , if I had known it. [ you did not know it and you did not change the plan] If you say 'knew' then you are talking about a true situation in the past and speculating about possible outcomes. We do not tend to use this when talking about ourselves because we know the outcomes made (so speculation is generally not possible). However, when talking about other people it is possible. For example: I heard he studied French at Oxford University. If he studied French at Oxford then he would have met Sarah. She studied French there too. [ we know he studied French; we are speculating about his meeting Sarah] As you can see, the context is very important here.
