Thirdly, the greatest difficulty teachers face in terms of implementing the performance assessment is securing objectivity and fairness; this is followed by teachers having to manage an increase in tasks such as grading. Lastly, the study demonstrates that the assessment of different performance areas by their respective teachers can be a significant issue given the potential for error in classifying areas and the lack of feasibility with respect to assessment standards. This seems to be an urgent issue for which a solution should be prioritized, especially in light of the fact that college admissions based on performance evaluations are set to be officially implemented.
