Abstract

The teacher performance evaluation is, at present, widely seen as a strategy that promotes the efficacy of education systems. However, the implementation of evaluation models aiming at reconciling the professional development of teachers and the improvement and quality of student learning has generated debate about the purposes and legal provisions of performance evaluation. In this context, it is important to know the perspective of school principals regarding performance evaluation, since they have a special responsibility in the process. The aim of this study is to understand the perceptions of schools principals about teacher performance evaluation as well as the evaluation model implemented by the D.R. n.º 2/2010. The study is qualitative in nature and is based on semi-structured interviews with twelve school principals. It is concluded that school principals recognize the importance of performance evaluation and have positive expectations about its effects. However, in their perspective, the evaluation model of the D.R. n.º 2/2010 did not meet those expectations.
