TPAD: Appraisal Rating Meeting
At the end of each term the appraiser will convene an appraisal rating meeting with the appraisee.
In this Meeting The appraisee and the appraiser discuss observations, assessment and complete the termly appraisal.
The teacher’s performance for the term is evaluated against the performance competency areas and appraisal rating for the term is agreed upon.
Areas that require support and development during the following term are identified and a development plan is generated.
A report on learners’ achievements is discussed with a view to further improvement.
In the case of disagreement between appraisee and appraiser rating an arbitrator is involved to make a final decision.
NB: Before the appraisal rating meeting, the appraiser should notify the appraisee of the time, venue and agenda of the meeting. This should be in line with the institutional TPAD calendar of activities.
Teaching standards refer to a set of requirements in TPAD process that define the minimum level of competencies expected of a teacher.
The standards form the basis for a teacher’s performance appraisal. The teachers will be required to show evidence of performance in order to have an objective rating.
The standards are in three categories or domains which are:
TPAD Rating Scale
The rating scale provided in the TPAD tool ranges from 1 to 5 where 5 represents the best performance and I represents lowest performance. Each standard has been assigned a weight (Wt) which after evaluation will earn the appraisee a score.
Though rating is done at the end of the term, the appraisee must work towards achieving the set targets and gather evidence.
The appraisee and appraiser work in collaboration where the appraiser supports the appraisee.
During this process, both parties accumulate evidence to be used during the appraisal rating meeting.
Gathering and presentation of evidence
During the term an appraisee is required to implement activities to meet the set targets.
As the activities are being implemented the appraisee continuously gathers evidence which will be used to support achievement of the targets during evaluation at the end of the term.
The appraiser is required to carry out continuous assessment of the implementation of the activities.
Some of the key areas where evidence should be gathered include;
Process of tpad Target Setting

The heads of institution will give institutional targets which are aligned to the targets provided by the Commission per standard e.g. The Commission has set a target on timely coverage of syllabus, the institution should identify topics to be covered and the time frame for each subject.
