This report is published in conjunction with a review of the global literature on teacher evaluation (Borg 2018). It offers an exploration of the policies and practices relating to the evaluation of teaching currently being used within the government school system in India. The publication highlights three national-level tools – ADEPTS, PINDICS and the Shaala Siddhi framework – which have been developed and used in in different ways across the country. Drawing on input from a group of educational specialists and four teacher focus groups, the case study highlights their perceptions of key features of a successful system of teacher evaluation. It also identifies some of the most critical enabling factors that can support such a system. Exploratory in nature, the report provides an excellent basis for further discussion, to inform future decision making around this important area at the school, state and national levels.
