We decided to use a Behaviorally Anchored Rating system (BARS) to evaluate teachers over various other methods due to several reasons. First, (BARS) minimizes these forms of bias; central tendency bias, where the rater tends to rate everyone near the average; a leniency bias, where the reviewer rates everyone near the top; strictness bias, the rater rates everyone near the bottom of the scale.

This correlation would also help us to determine if there are any flaws in our appraisal
