The former TPAD tool has been done away with due to its bulky nature. Moreover, it gave the teachers difficulty in terms of accessibility. The new tool is however less bulky and less detailed. Check out the details below.

The teachers’ service commission (TSC) new TPAD appraisal system is aimed at capturing teachers’ manual data. Here is the link: tpad2tsc.go.ke

The tool has got a reduced number of teaching standards from the previous 7 to 5 on its online portal. The commission, therefore, expects all teachers to upload their termly appraisals via the link provided above.

This move follows extensive consultations with various stakeholders which include teachers, school heads, Sub- County and County directors, curriculum support officers KTCPA and KESSHA on effective TPAD implementation.

The Teachers Service Commission has been monitoring TPAD and PC implementation since January 2016. The monitoring process is usually facilitated by county education offices. All Kenyan learning institutions are assessed and monitored continuously on a termly basis. This monitoring and evaluation is part of the performance contract signed by all county directors.

TEACHER-FRIENDLY TPAD TOOLS
For easier implementation, the Teachers Service Commission has customized its TPAD for teachers serving the following levels: primary, secondary, special needs schools and post-secondary institutions.

Although the teaching standards cut across all the levels, performance indicators and evidence greatly differ from one institution to another.

REVISED TEACHING STANDARDS
The TPAD teaching standards have been revised as follows:

Part A: INSTRUCTIONAL DELIVERY now consists of:
a. PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE AND PRACTICE
b. COMPREHENSIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
c. TEACHER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Part B: TEACHER CONDUCT AND PROFESSIONALISM has one part:
d. TEACHER CONDUCT AND PROFESSIONALISM

Part c: COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE which also has one part:
e. PARTICIPATION IN PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITY

It consists of 8 steps

1. Developing an appraiser calendar
2. Setting of termly targets
3. Implementing the targets set and evidence gathering
4. Self- appraisal based on various competencies and teaching standards
5. Appraiser rating based on the evidence given
6. Appraiser-Appraisee meeting which involves questions and evidence
7. Identifying teaching gaps
8. Implementing teacher support and development

REVISED T-PAD ONLINE SYSTEM
There are modifications in the new TPAD online system. The system has got one pack for three tools: TPAD, PC and TPD. Contrary to the old system, the new one is more superior and teacher-friendly.

It consists of the following:
1. Interaction
2. Adequate features of security
3. TPAD portal
4. Reports
5. Inbuilt self –monitoring
6. Real-time feedback
7. Performance Contracts for heads
8. Institutional-based needs
