Aldersgate College Performance Evaluation System

Marlou Felix S. Cunanan III, MBA, MIT

The performance evaluation system operates on the principle that work effectiveness can be assessed through observation of  occurrences in desired human behaviors. It also subscribes to the belief that there is always room for continuous improvement in work performance provided desired human behaviors are learned, assimilated and practiced.  The Performance Evaluation System ( is  therefore a  tool for measuring, monitoring and controlling work performance from different perspectives, i.e., students, subordinates, superiors, and peers.

The Performance Evaluation System provides a list of desired human behaviors that have been proven capable of generating  positive  teaching outcomes. It  provides benchmarks for identifying and measuring weaknesses  in  job performance so that proper remedies can be instituted. This includes self-correcting mechanisms at the personal and institutional levels.

The performance reports and ratings  generated by the various  evaluation perspectives will be analyzed and consolidated to be used for  making decisions on the following:

  1. Employee improvement programs
  2. Granting of pay increments
  3. Determining order of layoffs
  4. Rating employee’s suitability for promotion
  5. Examining the employee’s suitability for the job
  6. Justifying administrative decision to transfer, demote, or dismiss an employee

3rd National ICT Summit 2010

Recognizing the pressing need to take crucial steps in closing the gaps between academe, technology  and industry,  Dr. Junifen F. Gauuan, Aldersgate College President together with Mr. Marlou Felix Cunanan III, ACI Director, attended the 3rd National ICT Summit 2010 held last November 25-26, 2010 at the L Fisher Hotel in Bacolod City.

The summit aims to gather national and local government leaders and various stakeholders of the Information Technology – Business Process Outsourcing industry to develop and propel the Philippine ICT services towards making the Philippines the most preferred outsourcing and off-shoring destination in the world.

Through the National ICT Summit, the National ICT Confederation of the Philippines (NICP) was forged to be the recognized national venue for collaboration, sharing of best practices and development of linkages for growth and sustainability.

With this, Aldersgate College continues to equip its students with knowledge and skills to make them globally competitive in seizing the countless opportunities made possible through ICT.

Focus : Achieving Quality in Education: Strategies for Change
Topic : Assessment Procedures – theory and practice




In 1922 Thomas Edison predicted that “the motion picture is destined to revolutionize our educational system and … in a few years it will supplant largely, if not entirely, the use of textbooks.” Twenty-three years later, in 1945, William, the director of the Cleveland public schools’ radio station, claimed that “the time may come when a portable radio receiver will be as common in the classroom as is the blackboard.” Forty years after that the noted psychologist B. F. Skinner, referring to the first days of his “teaching machines,” in the late 1950s and early 1960s, wrote, “I was soon saying that, with the help of teaching machines and programmed instruction, students could learn twice as much in the same time and with the same effort as in a standard classroom.” Ten years after Skinner’s recollections were published; President Bill Clinton campaigned for “a bridge to the twenty-first century … where computers are as much a part of the classroom as blackboards.” Clinton was not alone in his enthusiasm for a program estimated to cost somewhere between $40 billion and $100 billion over the next five years. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, talking about computers to the Republican National Committee early this year [1997], said, “We could do so much to make education available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, that people could literally have a whole different attitude toward learning.”

Looking back on the last century and the comment by Oppenheimer, it is interesting to note how there has been a subtle shift in focus from promoting a variety of information and communication technologies in the learning environment to the expectation that education could be available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. What was omitted was the additional time period of 365 days a year. It is this leap of understanding that has taken many people in education by surprise and accounts for a healthy dose of both skepticism and optimism. Since 1997 when Oppenheimer wrote his paper The Computer DELUSION, examples of 24/7 education in schools has not evolved at the anticipated rapid rate to meet the promise and expectations. This is in direct contrast to the enormous growth of the Internet and the level of access in both homes and schools over the past four years. Greater access does not infer greater uptake of e-education.

The e-learning approach on the program is based on an underlying assumption that engagement in study will take place alongside participants’ professional work, with academic study enhanced by reference to current practice, and direct relevance of study to challenges and issues within the work context. With this in mind, almost all modules encourage assignments and project work to be contextualized within real educational contexts, and students are encouraged to combine a depth of exploration into issues pertaining to e-learning within their own contexts with mutual and peer learning through comparison and contrast with the contexts of their online colleagues.

All have been involved in the design of active learning activities which include online seminars, mini-action research projects, the development, implementation and evaluation of a period of e-Teaching Practice, the design and development of e-resources, and the development of a collaboratively-owned e-dossier comprising individual papers investigating a negotiated theme and topic related to e-learning management and implementation.

Engagement in this program has provided a valued form of professional development for some other academic colleagues and support staff across the college and has been instrumental in informing the development of online provision of modules and program within their own departments and faculty.
