1 Australian Teacher Performance and Development Framework

2 >Internationally, there is unequivocal evidence that the quality of teaching is the most significant in-school factor affecting student outcomes >There is also strong evidence that better appraisal and feedback leading to targeted development can improve teacher performance The motivation >Australian teachers report that they do not always get the feedback they need to improve

3 Teacher performance has been shown to improve when the following conditions are present: >Opportunities for teacher self-reflection and objective setting >Regular classroom observation and provision of constructive feedback from their school leader, as well as their peers >Frequent feedback on classroom performance as an ongoing dialogue, not a once a year discussion >Shadowing, coaching and mentoring from peers and leaders >Opportunities to contribute to and engage in teamwork, collaboration and action learning with other teachers to obtain the best possible outcomes for students Growing our potential, Hay Group, 2012
