Just as the introduction was a masterpiece of concise expression, the summary must sum up the impression the writer is trying to convey about the subject of the Eval. Normally, one or two lines are used at the bottom of the Comments on Performance block to summarize the tone of the report.

As you can see, the summary isn't an accomplishment. It's a statement much like the introduction that describes how the supervisor views the ratee. And the promotion statement is more or less a requirement. If a promotion statement isn't included in the Summary, it indicates that the rater doesn't think the person should be promoted and is communicating that fact to any future reviewer. If deserved, the promotion statement should be included because it is expected.
