Unregistered Every school is a good school, remember? So in the same light, every teacher is a good teacher even for those who are ranked C-

1. Performance grades in a school are based on a bell-curve? Also, for grade C, how many different segregations of performance are there (e.g. is it 1.25/1.5/1.75?)?

2. If you're in a "chiong" school, simply doing the bare satisfactory minimum (no significant mistakes made) may also warrant a C- because others are seen to be performing better?

3. Has there been any past cases where an individual felt that the given grade was unfair or poorly justified, and tried to dispute?

Thank you
Canít answer all, but will try answering Q1 and 2 based on experience.

It wouldnít fit exactly into a bell curve, but yet somewhat like it. The better performance grades will have fewer people, while C and C+ will have the majority of people - thatís the part it resembles bell curve.

If everyone is deemed to have C or above performance grade, then the last or last few ranked officers may get C- because we have to adhere to the quota of C-/D. Note that C- is not to say the officer didnít perform to the sub-gradeís performance, but that he/she performed RELATIVELY weaker.

We tend to band a number of teachers together within each performance grade, ie, their performances are similar to one another, but yet different across bands. This allows the P to then vary the quantum given for each band within the allowed quantum band for the sub-gradeís performance grade - panel does not decide on quantum.

I have gotten C- before. The year right after, B and promoted.

So, not true.
Your schoolís ranking panel cmi Or you simply wow everyone and rocketed your way to B...using whatever methods unknown to humankind. It is definitely not a norm for a C- to go to B the next ranking. Mind sharing why you got C-? That might shed some light.
