TPAD 2 System for TSC Teachers: What You Need to Know
The Teacher Performance Appraisal and Development (TPAD) system 2 is a mechanism that enables the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) to evaluate teachers’ performance in accordance with the agency’s established standards.
Performance appraisal is critical because it is used to review and improve teaching standards using a systemic appraisal approach.
This, in turn, promotes professional growth.

Creating a New Appraisal
- Click Self-Assessment from the menu.
- Choose “Create New Appraisal.”
- Select the year and term under Appraisal Details, and then indicate whether or not you are eligible for appraisal by clicking On Duty.
Select any of the assessment modes, from Teaching Standards to Learner Progress to Lesson Attendance and update, under the Assessment Area.
Before logging out, click the ‘Request Observation’ icon, then log out and wait for the headteacher to approve.
The appraisal form can be downloaded from the TPAD site. The form must be duplicated and filled out three times per term, or once per month.
Every year, the original report will be forwarded by July 31st, and the duplicate will be kept by the appraisee.
The form is divided into two sections.
Part 1: Personal Data
This includes a teacher’s personal information as well as their employment history.
Part 2: Performance Evaluation
The appraiser and appraisee discuss the appraisee’s performance in terms of departmental/divisional objectives, agreed-upon work targets, performance standards, output and expected results, and demonstrated skills/competences.
It is divided into 5 segments
Performance of appraisees is evaluated for each of the four quarters. It will account for 80% of the total rating.
In this section, the appraisee is evaluated based on behavioral characteristics that reflect the Commission’s Core values. This will account for 20% of the total rating.
Part 3: Overall Rating
This section will summarize the Quarterly scores in Parts 2A through 2D, as well as the scores on the behavioral attributes in Part 2E.
The total of the cumulative scores will then be converted into a percentage score.
It should be noted that in this section, the appraiser’s rating shall constitute the appraisee’s actual grade.
Part 4: Training Needs and Development
The appraisee is given the opportunity in this section to state specific performance gaps that, if addressed, will improve the appraisee’s output and competencies.
The appraiser will discuss the appraisee’s performance gaps and then propose what training interventions they believe are necessary as a supervisor.
Part 5: Countersigning Officer’s Remarks
The countersigning officer is the appraisee’s and appraiser’s overall supervisor. He or she will check the report.
