Abstract

Teachers, as the most important human resource in school, need to be monitored and evaluated for continuing improvement of the learning process. The study analyzed results of the faculty evaluation from the students’ point of view through the ratings and comments indicated in computerized student evaluation of the university. The student evaluators were chosen through a program designed purposely for the faculty evaluation of Nueva Vizcaya State University (NVSU) every semester which is being conducted by the University Educational Testing Center (UETC). Each faculty member is evaluated by 20 randomly selected students - each from the two preparations of the classes handled by the teachers. In case a class has less than 20 students, all of the students will be part of the evaluation process. The quantitative data were described using frequency count and means. The comments gathered were categorized by grouping answers with common themes, by college. The top three positive personal qualities were kind, approachable, and understanding; while the top three negative were soft voice, boring, and moody. For the professional qualities, the top three positive were good teaching, knowledgeable, and patient; while the top three negative were do not explain well, lack teaching strategy, and lazy.
