Procedure for Performance Appraisal: Teacher

Performance Appraisal for teachers is conducted to gain an annual insight of performance levels of the teaching staff. Insight: based on the parameters/student feedback / student performance analysis / Parent feedback / Peer Feedback. Based on the recommendation of team of teachers, appraisal is delinked from class room observation centric feedback. Most often it was observed that a planned observation was well composed incorporating all aspects of teaching, learning, assessments and other classroom management techniques bordering to near perfection. Hence a skewed feedback system got embedded. Classroom Observations will be done to gain the insight of the teaching learning process and the level of subject competence. 

Recommendations: 

  • Classroom session observation will be done for full period. 
  • Observation will be done by Unit Head, CPV / PTA, peers (for a healthy mix). Feedback of the lesson observation will be shared by the Unit Head. 
  • Preferably the observation should be unplanned. However for new staff members, it will be planned if they are not comfortable. 
  • Minimum two observations should be done by the Unit Head, one in each term.
  • Mandate - Minimum 2 sessions, 2 Teacher Leader conferences (TLC) after the observation. 
  • TLC must be documented as evidence of feedback and communication. Format for observation and feedback – UH can use the earlier format as guideline. 

Parent Feedback:

  • Parent observer must be a CPV i.e. 1 out of the 4 and / or a PTA member. 
  • It is mandatory that every teacher invites a parent – CPV / PTA member to observe her / his lesson. 
  • Observations will be done in the month of December for a week or two as marked in the Calendar.  
  • CPV and/or PTA to sit and observe the whole lesson. 
  • Parent to fill the feedback form on the same day of the observation in the office of Unit Head.
  • Feedback for the lesson will be given more as an open feedback along the guidelines. An overall feedback on the teacher will be given based on few parameters.  Parameters include an overview of the teacher in terms of competence, classroom management, time management, communication, approachability etc.
  • Parent feedback to be summarized by the UH to the teacher.

Peer Feedback:

While peers may observe and give feedback, their appraisal will be on the parameters which are on the lines that they are familiar about their colleagues.  

Student feedback for scholastic subject teachers:

  • Online feedback from students of class IV to XII (3 times a year) will be conducted.
  • On line feedback is taken from students on pre-determined parameters – written in simple language. They are given as numerical score. This is applicable for all class teachers, Unit Heads for the subject they teach and scholastic subject teachers.  

Final Appraisal Document:

The final compiled feedback will include feedback given by:
  • Self- (Appraisal form, Self-Disclosure Form )
  • Unit Head 
  • Peer
  • Parent 
  • Student – (Average of the feedback will be included)
  • The final compiled document of appraisal will be given to the employee before the Final Meeting with Principal and Director.
