Performance Appraisal helps to improve the performance of individuals and institutions thereby increasing their productivity, quality of performance and encouraging positive work. This research is about Performance Appraisal System in the Ghana Education Service and its effectiveness on teachers’ performance using Ada East District (AED) as a case study. The purpose of the study seeks to examine stakeholder’s perspective on the practices of appraisal of teachers in Ghanaian schools with specific reference to AED. The study adopted interpretive philosophy with qualitative single case study research design. Data was obtained through interview with the use of semi-structured interview guide with circuit supervisors, headteachers and teachers in the AED. The data was analyzed qualitatively using thematic analysis based on themes that were gathered from respondents. A sample size of 24 respondents was drawn from some selected public basic schools in the AED using purposive and simple random sampling techniques. The results of the study showed some gaps in the effective use of Performance Appraisal (PA). The study revealed that respondents acknowledged the importance of PA and for that matter seriousness must be attached to it usage. Challenges such as inadequate knowledge on the PA Policy, time constraints and among others were identified in the study. In order to ensure that PAS works effectively, the study recommended that regular in-service training for teachers, teachers should be monitored and supervise effectively, earning of teachers should be also based on their performance, adequate logistic materials should be provided and finally award system should be instituted so as to make PAS effective
