TSC Final TPAD Evaluation Report 2021

TSC rolled out TPAD in all public primary and secondary schools targeting over 300,000 teachers and has been monitoring TPAD implementation in all 47 counties.

Among these teachers, there are those under the PRIEDE Project (the 4,000-school supported by School Improvement Programme-SIP sponsored by World Bank). The size and nature of the targeted population to presents inherent challenges in terms of coverage during the evaluation.

Thus, the sampling techniques applied targeted a representation of SIP and Non-SIP schools, secondary schools, special schools and a
teacher training college from the target institutional and respondent population in each county.


In almost all regions county TSC directors lead in filling the TPAD evaluation questionnaires, while the head of institutions lead the respondents within the sampled institutions. It was also helpful that most of the respondents were aware of the TPAD process so they were comfortable with the contents of the questionnaires.

However, the TPAD evaluation process coincided with many other TSC and MOE educational programs in schools; and which involved teachers (CBC capacity building workshops) who were the key unit of analysis for TPAD evaluation. In some counties, there were simultaneous TSC activities such as training of teachers on TPAD and TSC promotion interviews which occasioned delayed responses or lack of respondents.

This was reported in Western, Central, Upper Eastern, Nyanza and Lower Eastern regions. In some parts of the Central region, especially Nyandarua and North Rift- Nandi, rainfall interrupted fieldwork activities, especially in the afternoon sessions. In the North Rift, Upper and North Eastern regions (Elgeyo Marakwet, Garissa, Marsabit, Wajir, Isiolo and Mandera Counties), insecurity was reported as a major threat.

For instance, there were tribal skirmishes between the Meru and Borana which disrupted a workday in Isiolo because, on the scheduled day, the TSC County Directors offices were closed. Between Marsabit and Moyale road the environment was a bit hostile; while between
Garissa and Mandera there were increased insecurity concerns due to warring communities.

The evaluation research team, Consultancy Firm management, technical team, regional co-ordinators and research assistants; (in few cases and only where necessary, in consultation with the TSC Quality assurance coordination team) made several repeats visits to counties and reached out to the affected TPAD stakeholders to administer evaluation tools and conduct interviews for the TPAD evaluation.

TPAD evaluation was conducted in all the 47 counties which were divided into ten regions for an effective data collection process. These regions include Nairobi, Coast, Lower Eastern, Upper Eastern, South Rift, North Rift, Western, Nyanza, Central and North Eastern.

Each region was managed by a supervisor during the data collection. The evaluation targeted key TPAD stakeholders in all public primary schools, secondary schools, primary and diploma teacher training colleges and special needs institutions in the 47 counties in Kenya.

The key TPAD stakeholders included the TSC Directorate of Quality Assurance, MoE PRIEDE project team, TSC county directors, TSC sub-county directors, curriculum support officers, heads of institutions, boards of management, appraisers, and appraisees.

The data collection process took place from Monday, 22nd February 2021 to Friday 5th
March 2021.
