Abstract

The general objective of the study was to assess the effectiveness of the Open Performance Review and Appraisal System of Public primary school teachers. The study was conducted in Mvomero District. Specifically, the study sought to: examine the effect of the levels of understanding of appraisal system by supervisors and supervisees in the implementation of OPRAS; assess teachers’ perceptions on the implementation of the OPRAS as required by the Management; assess the usefulness of OPRAS in decision making regarding transfers, promotions and demotions and to find out the challenges affecting the implementation of OPRAS to public primary school teachers in Mvomero District. A study was descriptive whereby both qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis approaches were employed. Respondents comprised of 20 supervisors and 120 supervisees making a total of 140. Data collected were analyzed using SPSS and excel sheet. The study revealed that OPRAS implementation to Public primary school teachers in Mvomero District was ineffective. Low level of understanding of appraisal system by supervisors and supervisee, negative teachers’ perceptions on OPRAS implementation, failure to use the evaluation feedback by supervisors in decision making, contributed to ineffective implementation of OPRAS. In view of above findings it is recommended that level of understanding of appraisal system by supervisors and supervisee and teachers’ perception on OPRAS should be increased through training and the OPRAS evaluation feedback should be used in managerial decision making to motivate teachers to be accountable on their work.
