Background Appraisal is regular and evidence based. The principal has used the RTLB professional standards when appraising RTLB and has asked RTLB to bring evidence of their effectiveness to appraisal sessions. Feedback from clients (students, teachers, parents and principals) is also considered in the appraisal process. The results from performance appraisals are then used to identify professional development for RTLB.
2009 In 28 clusters, RTLBs were appraised annually. The quality of this appraisal varied greatly, with only half of these clusters implementing a comprehensive appraisal process likely to lead to improved practice. ……... Appraisal of RTLB was not carried out in four of the clusters; in a further eight, it varied …….in a few clusters some RTLB were appraised while others were not….

Working Relationships Good Faith “Good faith means dealing with each other honestly, openly and without misleading each other.”
QUOTES FROM WORK PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS.. or things you don't want to see on your appraisal "Since my last report, this employee has reached rock bottom, and shows signs of starting to dig." "His team would follow him anywhere, but only out of morbid curiosity." "Works well when under constant supervision, and cornered like a rat in a trap." "When he opens his mouth, it seems that this is only to change whichever foot was previously in there." "This person has delusions of adequacy." "sets low personal standards, and then consistently fails to achieve them." "This employee should go far, and the sooner he starts, the better."
