Tracking error is simply the difference between the fund's returns and the index, or put another way how close did the fund get to matching the index?

I'd likely see if there is a way to get a better fund in place and/or consider investing most of your money in things other than that 401(k) if it has no good performers.

What is the name of the fund anyway? I'd look on Morningstar to see how close to the index does it do in terms of Modern Portfolio Theory statistics.
