Under the new rule, the marks given to the teachers after evaluating their performances have been raised to 400 marks compared to 40 allowed earlier.

The inspectors will now have a free hand in giving the marks. Moreover, unlike the previous evaluation system, which was conducted in secrecy with teachers having no right to view it, the new rule allows the teachers to satisfy themselves with the evaluation process and express their views.

In the past, teachers were not allowed to openly express their views on the evaluation report.

The new rule will be circulated to all the educational zones this week. Under it, performance of teaches will be mentioned under four categories: excellent, very good, good and unsatisfactory.

The assessment of performance will be made on the basis of the teachers’ skills to present and explain the subject according to the students’ understanding and absorption capacity.

Marks will be given on their teaching and learning abilities, techniques and objectives of the lesson and the teachers’ systematic approach to impart knowledge to their students on a gradual basis.

The teachers will be required to know the students’ abilities and promote interaction. They will be required to encourage students to ask questions and pursue self-learning and reduce dependence. Teachers will also get marks for discipline and remaining fully attentive to the class.

The new rule is aimed at creating excellence in teaching as it will help teachers to improve their performance.
