Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the perceptions of TVS principals and their appraisers about the present system of PPA operating in TVSs of Ethiopiai and hence, to discover if differences existed between the two study groups in perceiving the purposes of the appraisal scheme, the adequacy and appropriateness of the appraisal criteria, and the competence of appraisers. To this end, descriptive survey method was employed. The study was conducted in 8 government TVSs of the country selected on the basis of purposive sampling technique. The subj ects of the study were 16 appraisees and 120 appraisers drawn from the sample schools and ZEDs. Information was solicited from the sample respondents through a survey questionnaire which was field-tested in 2 schools and modified for distribution. Various statistical tools such as percentages, t-test, one-way ANOVA and Tukey HSD test, and chi-square test were used for data analysis. The findings of the study revealed that the appraisees and the appraisers perceived the ma i.n purposes of the appraisal scheme as being summative and formative respectivelYi and the appraisal criteria were found to be inadequate and inappropriate to appraise TVS principals. Moreover, among the designated appraisers, parents and students were identified as being incompetent to undertake the task of PPA. In general, the current system of PPA was perceived as being ineffective in attaining the major purposes which it was intended to serve. Hence, it was recommended that necessary revisions, In which principals would have meaningful participation, ought to be made in the design and operation of the appraisal scheme.
