Appraisal helps

4th November 1994 at 00:00
TES readers really do deserve higher standards of accuracy and professional detachment than those displayed by Mary Jane Kehily. She appears to completely ignore the wealth of evaluative data provided to her by one of the local education authorities in question.

Detailed evaluation of the perceptions of more than 3,000 teachers and 300 headteachers confirm that 94 per cent of teachers and heads rated the training provided as being very good; 70 per cent of teachers and headteachers felt that appraisal had significantly changed their classroommanagement practice; 90 per cent were satisfied with the professional development outcomes agreed with their appraiser.
