Appraisals – measuring the immeasurable


Effective appraisal in the school setting

GMS consultant Larry Forbes, a highly experienced appraiser and appraisal coach/mentor shares a practical and practised approach to school-based appraisal.

This is essential reading for appraisers and highly recommended for all staff and board of trustee members in the context of viewing appraisal as a process done with people and not to people.

The information is offered in the knowledge that most schools now have performance management systems in place which meet compliance requirements.  The intention is to offer suggestions aimed at moving beyond compliance to the application of best practice appraisal processes.

The content is intended to help you review and refine what is currently happening in your school in the context of an outside perspective.

The material includes references to:

  • Setting the appraisal platform
  • Dealing with the “tough” issues
  • Appraisal processes
  • Appraisal practice
  • Setting goals/objectives and performance indicators
  • Principal appraisal

Feel free to download, copy and use this material. We would appreciate acknowledgement whenever you do use the material – and rather than copy it for others we would appreciate you referring them to this website to download it for themselves.

The team at GMS would be pleased to talk to you about providing a proposal to undertake appraisals in your school.
