Abstract

The process of inspection is not new in education; it is used to monitor teachers’ performance which is dated back to the colonial period. Due to increase in number of schools, teachers, and students it was observed that multiple vigilance techniques are being used to cope with the problems such as absenteeism from duties, lack of professionalism, and degradation in teaching but certain psychological effects due to excessive visits have also been reported by teachers. Educators’ complaints signify that excessive monitoring is yielding depression on their performance. The study aimed to analyze “the psychological effects of excessive administrative visits on teachers’ efficiency”. The simple random sampling technique for selecting 371 teachers from the secondary schools from Bahawalpur area was used. The researcher collected the feedback of teachers regarding excessive administrative visits and its psychological repercussion by using a self-designed questionnaire, on 5 points Likert scale. Cronbach alpha reliability of the tool was 0.915. Data were analyzed by two ways. First of all its mean scores and measures of dispersion (standard deviation) was calculated. The independent sample t-test was applied on the respondents’ data. For multiple comparisons of different variables, one way ANOVA was applied on the data. The findings showed that psychological effects like fire out, lack of interest, conversion to other profession, anxiety, depression, overburden, etc exist among teacher due to excessive administrative visits, which may affect teachers’ efficiency.
