Name of Project:
Fast Automated System for
Teachers Evaluation and Ratings
(FASTER)
Study Area: Division of Rizal, Rizal, Philippines
Group members:
Doris Monsanto, House of Representatives
Aniceto Orbeta, PIDS
Socorro Gultiano, OPS

I. Background








Teachers spend a substantial time in grade preparation reducing time for academic activities
Delayed grade computations delays feedback to students, teachers and schools Congressman believes that if this time for grade preparation can be reduced, then the teacher can spend more of his/her time in academic activities Congressman contracted a software developer to develop an electronic grading system that can be provided to teachers/schools

Decision making on interventions is slow because no timely indicators of student, teacher and school performance
Computer utilization of teachers is low
Beyond the political and immediate reason for the project‐ long term contribution – Promotion of computer literacy‐ in an area where it’s relevant – Creates a database for informed policy making at the division and national level

Research Questions
1.

Will automated grading system reduce time spent on grade preparation and hasten grade submission?
2. Will reduced time for grade preparation increase time for academic preparations?
3. Will faster grade preparation lead to more timely teacher intervention? 4. Will student performance improve if teachers have more time spent for academic preparations?
5. Will grade awareness among students enhance their motivation and performance?
6. Will performance awareness among teachers improve teacher performance? 7. Will automated grading system improve teachers’ job satisfaction? 8. Will automated grading system enhance overall computer literacy and utilization of teachers?

9. Will there be difference in impact between elementary and secondary teachers? 10. Will timely information on grades enhance identification of interventions at the school and division levels?
11. Will the database generated by the automatic grading system improve school performance?

IV. Outcome Indicators
1. Time allocation of teachers (academic
preparation, grade preparation, extra‐
curricular activities)
2. Teacher job satisfaction index
3. Teacher utilization of computers
