TALIS 2013 Results

An International Perspective on Teaching and Learning

How can countries prepare teachers to face the diverse challenges in today’s schools?  The OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) helps answer this question by asking teachers and school leaders about their working conditions and the learning environments at their schools. TALIS aims to provide valid, timely and comparable information to help countries review and define policies for developing a high-quality teaching profession. It is an opportunity for teachers and school leaders to provide input into educational policy analysis and development in key areas.  This report presents the results of the second cycle of the TALIS survey conducted in 2013.

Hide / Show Abstract

Teacher appraisal and feedback are important components of teachers’ careers and development. The primary purpose is to provide teachers with valuable input to better understand and improve their teaching practice. However, teacher appraisal and feedback can also be used to identify professional development or career opportunities for teachers. This chapter looks at teachers’ access to both formal appraisal and formal and informal feedback from sources internal and external to their schools. The chapter explores the focus and content of the appraisal and feedback that teachers receive, as well as any consequences that result. Finally, the chapter discusses whether other factors, such as increased school autonomy, have an influence on the nature and occurrence of teacher appraisal and feedback.
