Background Integrated Quality Management System (IQMS ) - Resolution 8 of For the Department of Education – and for all educators - the main objective is to ensure quality public education for all and to constantly improve the quality of learning and teaching, and for this we are all accountable to the wider community. The Department has the responsibility of providing facilities and resources to support learning and teaching. Successful educational outcomes also depend upon empowering, motivating and training educators. Quality Management seeks to monitor and support these processes. Evaluation of programmes and practices is essential to any ongoing effort to improve any profession. Evaluation is not apart from but is a part of the educational process.
Background – cont. "It is our individual performances, no matter how humble our place in life may be, that will in the long run determine how well ordered the world may become." Paul C. Packer Purpose: align & implement the different quality management programmes (Developmental Appraisal, Performance Measurement & Whole School Evaluation).
Background – cont. DA : to determine areas of strength and weakness – to draw up programmes for individual development. PM:to evaluate individual teachers for salary progression, grade progression, affirmation of appointments and rewards and incentives.
2009/2010 Statistics 98% of all educators in the province were evaluated. The majority of educators not evaluated were as a result of sick leave. Educators that were non-compliant with the process:2009 = = 51

2009 vs Since 2009, scores have become more realistic – indicating an improved understanding and management of the system. In some cases there is no evidence to support high scores. Training interventions and support to educators is still inadequate. Overall ratings are not aligned to your typical Bell Curve – [5% ; 75% ; 20%]
Analysis of Process Categories of educators that do not qualify for pay progression: Those promoted in a cycle (1 July – 30 June) Resolution 5 of Break in service (1 Jan – 31 Dec), (1 July – 30 June) Temporary educators (less than 12 months continuous service) Under qualified educators (REQV 12 or less – on a personal maximum) Underperforming educators. Educators that did not comply.
System Flaws Unsatisfactory Score generated by PERSAL for all categories Conversion of scores (office-based, PMDS to IQMS) Educators acting on higher post levels Secondments (Non-Union) No score due to LEAVE (maternity & sick) Improvement of qualifications Promotion dates
Operational Challenges Summative Score Sheets (QA7) Non-compliance – no copies Late Submission – no copies Not all Pages submitted. Schools name not on all pages. Total number of WCED educators incorrect. Incorrect PERSAL numbers. Incorrect Post Levels. Educators evaluated on higher post level not indicated. i.e PL1/PL2, PL2/PL3, PL2/PL4
Operational Challenges – cont. Scores incorrectly added up (not verified). Post levels added to scores. Some do not contain the required 3 signatures (SDT Co-ordinator, Principal & IMG Manager). Status not indicated (Permanent, Temporary, Substitute, Secondment). Reasons for non-evaluation not recorded (Sick Leave, Maternity Leave, Secondment, Refusal).
Process Concerns All permanently employed educators MUST be evaluated (Secondments). Schools must keep records of QA5s and QA7s. Moderation and verification must take place by the principal & IMG Manager (EVIDENCE BASED). P2 & P3 Principals must be evaluated as Principals. Being evaluated on a higher post level – by agreement. Learning Support Educators (LSE) – reflected on QA7. Substitutes – on QA7 as well as permanent educator. Transfers to and from other provinces.
