Abstract: This experimental study was conducted to determine the effect of systematic training carried out in a step by step procedure on the teachers’ performance. In this regard, estimated Potential for Improving Performance (PIP) of trainees was also determined. One of the main objectives of this study was to measure the experimental effect of systematic training in terms of marks improved as a result of systematic training. Potential for improving performance was computed as a need analysis tool to estimate the effect of systematic training. It was taken as a conceptual tool which can set the priority of conducing training among different groups of trainees. Pretest and posttest were conducted in order to determine the effect of systematic training. Although research literature is full of teachers’ training but systematic training is still rare, especially in Pakistan. It was a true experimental study that focused on academic performance of secondary school teachers (SSTs) in District Rajanpur. The list of all male secondary school teachers (SSTs) in district Rajanpur was obtained. Sixty SSTs were selected through the simple random method. Treatment and control groups were equated on the basis of pretest scores. The experimental group was provided with the treatment of systematic training whereas the control group was not provided with any treatment. First, the required performance gap between trainer and trainees was measured through pretest then the training was conducted to fill this performance gap as mentioned in Human Performance Model (Aziz, 2013) by the International Society of Performance Improvement. After preparing the lesson plans, need based training was conducted through the lecture method, followed by discussions for a period of six weeks. Potential for improving performance (PIP) of all experimental subjects was computed with the help of the Second Leisurely Theorem by Gilbert (1996). A medium large magnitude (.626) of effect size was determined by Cohen’s ES. In linear regression analysis, R Square was .523 to explain a portion of the posttest scores by the PIP. Results revealed that computing the potential for improving performance of teachers is a useful need analysis tool. It may be used to set the priority of conducting training among different groups of teachers. Such type of systematic training can be helpful to improve teachers’ performance by using only the necessary money, time, and effort. As per the findings and conclusions of this study, it is recommended that the systematic training may be adopted more frequently in educational institutions. It may increase the performance of teachers by increasing their accomplishment and reducing the resources to be spent on their training. It is a need based training. Potential for improving performance (PIP) may be adopted as a conceptual tool for need analysis of training.
