Abstract: In the present reporting, a methodology adapted from multicriteria decision-making (MCDM) has been proposed in order to evaluate the overall performance of a teacher. Grey relational analysis has been explored in order to prioritise quality attributes that are expected to influence performance level of a teacher. Based on COPRAS-method, numerical values (interval scores) on different attributes assigned for a group of teachers (multiplied by individual weightage) have been accumulated to compute an overall quality estimate indicating the performance level of individual teachers. Application feasibility as well as the efficiency of this method and guidelines in solving such a multi-attribute decision-making problem has been described illustratively in this paper.
