1. Literature Review

"Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of being."

--- Johann W. Von Goethe

The ultimate goal in education should be to provide the best quality educational experiences for the students . each process implemented in a school district should contribute towards accomplishing that goal. For an appraisal system to contribute towards that goal , it must promote the professional improvement of each staff member and, when necessary , provide data to remove a teacher whose presence in the profession is detrimental to students.

Implementing an appraisal system that improves personnel performance and removes incompetent teachers without creating climate of mistrust and malcontent is one of the most elusive tasks in education Teachers generally resent the need to be reviewed through a process they view as punitive . Principals become frustrated with appraisal procedures that have a negative impact on school climate. Superintendents/supervisors are frustrated with efforts to demonstrate accountability through in effective procedures. School trustees anxiously assure the community of the competence of all staff even though their involvement with the appraisal process is infrequent. (Valentine , 1992)
