Excellence is considered to be one of the cornerstones of the Elizabeth Seton School community. To enable its personnel to imbibe this spirit, constant appraisal of performance is carried out to ascertain the contribution of all its members in adherence to the mission-vision of the school and other standards prescribed by the ESS management.


The supervision of the evaluation program is spearheaded by the ESS Human Resource Development Unit by facilitating periodic standard evaluations of employee competency in relation to the performance of their function, attitude towards work, display of concern and willingness to extend extra service as well as reporting to work and presence during important school functions and activities.


                The ESS - PEP is implemented in order to achieve the following objectives:


1.     To ascertain the level of competence of employees in performing their duties and responsibilities in relation to the standards of the Elizabeth Seton School


2.     To identify and provide feedback on areas of strengths and weaknesses;


3.     To determine training needs and personnel development;


4.     To provide objective bases for appraisal and promotion;


5.     To provide employees means to make self-assessment regarding their growth and development.



Evaluation Period


The ESS Faculty Evaluation Program is completed within a period of a school year, from June to March. Employees are evaluated in determined intervals and frequency depending on the tool and criterion measured.  



Evaluation Criteria


                The program is divided into four (4) major criteria wherein all teachers are evaluated: Competency, Job Attitude, Extra Mile and Attendance.


                The performance evaluation is facilitated by the developmental method of evaluation. This method of evaluation requires supervising heads to monitor the performance of subordinates within a given period using records of pertinent and significant data, observation and anecdotal records such as learning plans and the like.


  1. Teaching Competency


                              Teaching Competency (TC) pertains to the capacity of a faculty employee to design, deliver and asses learning experience based on the set academic standards. 


TC, in general, is given the highest weight in the final average at fifty percent (50%) because it measures the teacher’s effectiveness in performing his core function. The evaluation of the TC uses a standardized tool which is issued to immediate supervisors at predetermined intervals to ensure the impartial assessment of a teacher’s development and progress over time.


Competency Criteria


To ensure that a teacher is fairly measured, the TC tool is broken into five (5) major components which have been identified as necessary competencies that promotes effective learning inside the classroom.






Instructional Content


Assessment of the pre-prepared learning plan which sets the pace, content and flow of each lesson.



Instructional Skills

This in essence assesses the teacher at face value.



This criterion takes into account how the teacher carries her/himself in front of her/his class and the effectiveness in the delivery of the learning plan.




Knowledge of Subject Area

Evaluation of how knowledgeable the faculty is regarding the subject taught – taking into consideration their ability to make the lesson more relevant and interesting to students




Rapport with


Measures the faculty’s professional relationship with the students



Classroom Management

One of the basic but important roles of a teacher is the management of students; taking into account their behavior and environment , ensuring that everyone’s actions are accounted and that they are  prepped for class instruction




Post-observation Conferences


                Upon the completion of the TC each quarter, the evaluator is required hold a post-conference with the faculty member to discuss areas of strength and weaknesses, and points for improvement observed. 


                An accomplished TC form will only be considered valid for inclusion in PEP if submitted tool bears the signature of both the evaluator and the faculty evaluated.


Student Evaluation 


In as much as teachers are guided and assessed periodically by their supervisors, it is only through their actual and regular audience that one could really gauge their effectiveness inside the classroom; to gain insight on this, randomly selected students from Grade 5 to 4th year High School evaluate their teacher’s performance annually.  


                The averaged rating of fifty (50) students across sections and levels for each faculty is given a weight of ten percent (10%), wherein each student evaluator contributes a marginal but collectively significant weight of 0.20%.


                The tool used by students is constructed using the same criteria above, wherein some words and thoughts have been simplified to ensure comprehension within their age group.


Student evaluators are gathered each year by year level and are oriented regarding the objectives and processes of the evaluation prior to rating to minimize, if not eliminate, biases on teachers.


  1. Job Attitude


Job attitude pertains to the employees’ observable manifestations of affective orientations towards tasks or certain aspects of the job.  This is evaluated as a reflection of their professional responsibility to routine work such as checking test papers and submitting department reports, as well as, their relationship with peers, students and guests.


The tool is completed semi-annually by the LC and SAC using documented evidences as basis for their ratings.


  1. Extra Mile


                The unpaid initiative of employees to render service to the community outside of their regular functions is considered as Extra Mile (EM).


                This unique component of the evaluation has been added to give recognition to employees who have selflessly given more than what has been expected of them, as well as, encourage others to take on other responsibilities that will expose them to different work environments.


                In as much that all forms of volunteerism are considered noble, the amount of responsibility given to varying roles must also be taken into account. In this regard, extra mile is classified between Major equivalent to two (2) points and Minor equivalent to one (1) point.


                The list below serves as a sample guide of duties and responsibilities which are considered as Extra Mile:




§ Committee Chairmanship

§ FASECC / COOP Officer

It shall be responsibility of employees to complete the provided EM form and submit all evidences in relation to the rating of EM annually. Aside from the school manual, which maybe credited to the employee for two (2) school years, all other researched material for school use will be credited only for one (1) school year.


  1. Attendance


                Attendance is a direct reflection of the dependability, responsibility and commitment of an employee. Efforts exerted on ensuring promptness and regularity in reporting to work, as well as attendance to all important school functions and activities is crucial in achieving institutional goals and is therefore given importance in the assessment of employee standing.  


                To fairly assess all facets of attendance, its components have been broken down into sub-groups which have been identified as critical:

Punctuality to Work

Record of employee’s timeliness in reporting and leaving work
