Measuring how well activities are done in meeting goals. Proficiency of skills, choice of skills, and ability to execute are all components here. Generally the questions will be about maximizing one's performance or ability to perform tasks.

Generally these questions will be tied into performance management which is defined as:

Performance management (PM) includes activities that ensure that goals are consistently being met in an effective and efficient manner. Performance management can focus on the performance of an organization, a department, employee, or even the processes to build a product or service, as well as many other areas.

Performance management as referenced on this page is a broad term coined by Dr. Aubrey Daniels in the late 1970s to describe a technology (i.e. science imbedded in applications methods) for managing both behavior and results, two critical elements of what is known as performance.
