Abstract


Professional development programs play a fundamental role in shaping a community. For the improvement in quality of education, training organizations run various programs. Effectiveness of these program and performance of the teacher education institutions can be assessed by evaluating the performance of people who participate in these programs. The researchers had analyzed the professional development program of novice techers on lesson planning by usingobservational check list to observe the classroom performance of forty-eight novice teachers who participated in this program. Independent sample t-test and one way ANOVA were used for analysis. It was also found that there was no significant difference in the mean scores of novice teachers regarding professional development in the areas of lesson planning skills with respect to their designation, academic qualification and professional qualification.On the basis of findings of our study it is recommended that Government may establish a mechanism for implementation of training in classrooms by involving school heads and teacher educators. Moreover, incentives may be given to teachers for successful completion of trainings and its implementations.An environment of competition may be created for implementation of training.
