The present study conducted a metaevaluation of a teacher performance system used in the Performance Assessment Services Unit (PASU) of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde in Manila Philippines. To determine whether the evaluation system on teacher performance adheres to quality evaluation, the standards of feasibility, utility, propriety, and accuracy are used as standards. The system of teacher performance evaluation in PASU includes the use of students rating called the Student Instructional Report (SIR) and a rating scale used by peers called the Peer Evaluation Form (PEF). A series of guided discussions was conducted among the different stakeholders of the evaluation system in the college such as the deans and program chairs, teaching faculty, and students to determine their appraisal of the evaluation system in terms of the four standards. A metaevaluation checklist was also used by experts in measurement and evaluation in the Center for Learning and Performance Assessment (CLPA). The results of the guided discussion showed that most of the stakeholders were satisfied with the conduct of teacher performance assessment. Although in using the standards by the Joint Committee on evaluation, the results are very low. The ratings of utility, propriety, and feasibility were fair and the standard on accuracy is poor. The areas for improvement are discussed in the paper.
