International models for teacher performance assessment and proposals for Azerbaijan

Education is a system that not only affects the level of development
of society, but also formed under the influence of the level of development
of society. The leading role of the teachers in this direction
has made them an essential force in education. Therefore, teacher
performance is one of the main factors that directly affect the quality
of education. Research shows that in many countries, performance
appraisals are aimed at identifying and eliminating weaknesses and
professional development of teachers without damaging their reputation.
The aim of the study is to investigate international experience
on teacher performance evaluation and to develop proposals for the
creation of the Azerbaijani model by coordinating the results with the
local educational environment. The theoretical and methodological
basis of the research issues consists of scientific works of different
researchers, current official documents, information in the press. Research
methods such as analysis and synthesis, systematic and structural
approach were used in the study of the problem. The practical
significance of the research is that the models and proposals involved
in this study can be used in the creation of the Azerbaijani model in
this area, as well as in the writing of future monographs and articles.
