Purpose of Teacher’s Self Assessment

Assessment plays a key role in schools’ improvement and teachers’ development. A teacher, who does not reflect on and introspect his/her methods and actions in the classroom/school, would tend to be repetitive in the future. He/she may teach a concept in the same way and may use the same examples and activities again and again in the class irrespective of the performance of the students. Once the teacher starts looking at himself/herself and analyses what has yielded results and what has gone wrong in the teaching-learning process and other school activities, he/she will be able to identify the areas which require further improvement. This process will help the teachers to identify their strengths and weaknesses, and thereby, motivating them to improve their performance which will ultimately help to achieve the objectives, such as schools’ improvement and accountability of teachers.

The present Teacher’s Self Assessment Rubrics can be used by teachers for assessing their performance and making continuous efforts to reach the highest level. This tool can be used by teachers voluntarily as a resource to guide their thinking as they would be able to reflect on their instructional practices, including their areas of strength, the scope for growth as well as available and desired support.

Teacher’s Self Assessment Rubrics (TSAR)

Self-assessment by teachers is fundamental to reflective practice that contributes to the professional growth of teachers. The TSAR is an assessment tool which serves as a guide for teachers to self-assess themselves and reflect on their daily teaching practices as well as on their role as a teacher. TSAR is based on six performance standards mentioned below. These Performance Standards reflect the expected roles and responsibilities of a teacher.

(1) Designing Learning Experiences

(2) Knowledge and Understanding of the Subject Matter

(3) Strategies for Facilitating Learning

(4) Interpersonal Relationship

(5) Professional Development

(6) School Development

Guidelines to Teachers to Complete TSAR

Self-assessment by the teacher should be done once in an academic year, preferably at the end of the first quarter.

The following points need to be taken care of while undertaking the self assessment:

1). Complete the teacher’s profile. If you are using the online/mobile app, please register.

2). Read each performance indicator carefully and reflect on it in the context of your classrooms’ as well as school’s practices. Each indicator contains four descriptors. Read all the descriptions carefully and select the descriptor that best describes your performance.

3). Provide evidence/reason for the selection of a particular level.

4). Complete Table 1 by providing a rating point for each indicator. An example of the same has been given in Appendix 2.

5). Calculate the total score for each Performance Standard by adding scores of Performance Indicators under that PS.

6). Prepare a descriptive report based on your assessment in Table 2 (Appendix 3). The report may also include the areas in which help is required.

7). Submit a copy of the filled-in tool along with the descriptive report to the Head Teacher/ Principal/CRC/BRC/DIET so that they can provide you further professional support and mentoring.

8). If you are using the online tool or mobile app, please get a printed copy of the report.

9). If any of the performance indicators/descriptors are not applicable in your context, please write NA in the Remark Column with a valid reason for the same.

Each performance standard includes performance indicators, which directly indicate the expected roles and responsibilities of teachers. A teacher’s performance is assessed on a continuum ranging from ‘Much effort is needed to reach the expected standard’ to ‘Beyond the expected standard’. The subdivisions in this continuum are based on the actual performance of teachers as per different indicators specified under each performance standard.
