The Teacher Professional Appraisal and Development (TPAD) system, which has revealed that more than 90% of Primary and secondary school teachers are responsible, has been very helpful to the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), which has been facing difficulties with teacher absenteeism.
The TSC Chief Executive Nancy Macharia noted that their data suggests that use has helped to lower teacher absenteeism, increase accountability, and improve the quality of instruction in schools despite the fact that some instructors still had issues using the system.
Dr. Macharia reports that a total of 319,584 primary and secondary school teachers successfully connected into the system, filled their online forms, and submitted them to TSC for the most current evaluations.
32 counties had TPAD completion rates of more over 90%, according to the TSC study.Only Baringo County, which has experienced local instability, managed to complete projects at a rate of 79.4 percent.
The counties of Lamu and Nairobi had the highest percentages of complete evaluations, at 99.36 and 99.05 percent, respectively.

287,400 teachers completed their assessments in the first term of 2021, according to TSC.
The number of teachers from 55.92 percent in the second term of 2021 to 84.67 percent at the time, had one of the highest pay increased to 293,419, and at the end of term three, 319,584 instructors had completed their evaluations.
The commission’s ultimate objective, in Macharia’s opinion, is total compliance with the evaluation procedure.
The commission uses the system for official assessment to evaluate the quality and effectiveness of teachers with the aim of promoting learning.
These assessment forms have a big impact on teacher promotions and career progress.
Dr. Macharia has asked county directors to provide a list of instructors who have not yet been included to the system, a justification for this, and a list of any possible missing schools.
