The areas of concern believed to be relevant to examine the perception of teachers' towards the current result-oriented TPA system were: the purposes of TPA, teachers' performance appraisal criteria, teachers' participation in the _/ortnulation of TP/1 criteria, performance appraisal feedback, competence and objectivity ofthe appraisers and the process of the current TPA.

However, this process was not properly followed by the eolleges and teachers' were forced to prepare action plans fiom the objectives already established by the upper body (REB). 0 The performance appraisal feedback system was perceived to be characterized by criticism, lack of rewards, and delay in givingfeedback to teachers. 0 There were no adequate pre and post appraisal discussions between teachers and appraisers. The following are some of the recommendations; 0 The REB need to leave the criteria open to leachersjor discussion before implernenting ` them or let the teachers and the other college members/orntulate these criteria and get approval of the REB. 0 The college deans, in collaboration with the RIJB, neea' to arrange training programs for appraisers.

I The colleges need to arrange programs in which belter petforming teachers are rewarded and experiences are shared among the teachers. The feedback system also need to focus on praising and encouraging teachers.
