Abstract: The purpose of the research was to assess educators' perceptions of a state-mandated system for evaluation of teachers and to examine these perceptions as they related to a review of the literature an evaluation. The differences between teachers' and administrators' perceptions of The North Carolina Performance Appraisal System were also examined. Three questionnaires were administered to 400 teachers, 32 principals, and 18 central office personnel in the Rowan County Schools, Salisbury, North Carolina. The first administration was prior to the implementation of the new, state-mandated appraisal system. The second questionnaire was given at the end of the first year; the third administration was after the second year of using the appraisal system. The results of the questionnaires were investigated using percentages, means, and chi-squares for each group. The principals and central office personnel were then combined into one group and the chi-square statistic was applied to study changes that existed between teachers and administrators.
