It helps if you explain that most of the indicators in the eight domains are based on effective teaching practices supported by brain research.There is a connection between the appraisal system and the concept of continuous improvement in classroom performance through learner-focused, data-driven discussions and on-going feedback – from administrators and in PLCs.
