In the world of Globalization there is tough competition among different companies. A company’s growth depends on many factors. One of the core factor is skilled manpower. In India we have to concentrate on highly skilled manpower which can be achieved through high quality of education systems. To induce accountability and Transparency in the education system, Mr. Vilas Padhye, lecturer in Psychology, Government college of Arts and Science Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India has developed a Teachers Assessment scale (TASC) .This scale is useful for assessing performance of a Teacher on five different core factors. The 5 core factors are:-1.Knowledge in the subject.2. Classroom teaching and communication 3.Sincearity 4.Attitude towards students and 5. Facilitating overall development of students. 20 item questionnaires has been developed for the assessment of Scale. The answer of the student among the five alternatives reflects the student’s opinion about the ability of the teacher. Here our aim is to analyze the student’s opinion about the Teacher in a correct scientific way so that the purpose of TASC is achieved. For this, marks are assigned as per the student’s response in a different way. After assigning marks to the responses, different weightage are given to the different factor which reflects the Teacher’s ability. Teacher’s Assessment is evaluated by the Weighted Mean based on the weighted average of the five factors.
