Abstract: First paragraph: The research documented below investigates the impact of faculty appraisal at two higher education (HE) institutions, located about 15 kms apart, in the same Middle Eastern country. It has been motivated by two beliefs. The first is that the faculty appraisal system of an educational institution is particularly indicative of its more general approach to leadership and management; in other words, “the kind of appraisal system which an institution adopts reflects and reveals both the value system and the internal structures of the organisation” (Hutchinson, 1997:166). The second is that “the development of appraisal systems is part of the development of a more managerial approach to education” (Walsh. 1988, p. 365) and consequently, appraisal systems provide useful windows through which to examine claims of rising managerialism in education
