The Results-based Performance Management System (RPMS) Manual for Teachers and School Heads was developed through the Philippine National Research Center  for Teacher Quality (RCTQ) with support from the Australian Government through the Basic Education Sector Transformation (BEST) Program.

TEACHERS play a crucial role in improving the quality of the teaching and learning process. Good teachers are vital to raising student achievement.  Hence, enhancing teacher quality ranks foremost in the many educational reform efforts toward quality education.

To            complement      reform  initiatives             on           teacher quality, the         Philippine         Professional Standards for Teachers (PPST) has been developed and nationally validated. This was signed into policy by Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary              Maria    Leonor         Briones through DepEd   Order    No.         42,          s.             2017.

The PPST articulates what constitutes teacher quality through well-defined domains,         strands and        indicators            that        provide measures            of            professional         learning,              competent practice and effective engagement across teachers’ career stages. This document serves as a public statement of professional accountability that can help teachers reflect on and assess their own practices as they aspire for personal growth and professional development.

In             2015,     the         DepEd   issued   Order    No.         2,            s.             2015       —         “Guidelines        on           the         Establishment and Implementation of the Results-based Performance Management System (RPMS) in the Department of Education” following Civil Service         Commission       Memorandum  Circular No.         06,          s.             2012       or            the         Strategic              Performance     Management    System (SPMS) to            ensure  efficient,         timely   and        quality performance among personnel.

The         guidelines           explain mechanisms,     criteria  and        processes            for         performance     target    setting, monitoring,        evaluation           and        development         planning.             Through               the         RPMS,   the         DepEd   ensures that        work         efforts  focus     towards               achieving             its           vision,   mission,               values   and         strategic               priorities              toward the         delivery of            quality  educational services to Filipino learners.

The alignment of the RPMS with the Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers has led to the development of new results-based assessment tools; hence,        this         Manual on           RPMS         Tools     for          Teachers.

This Manual provides information and guidance to Teachers and School Heads     in            the         performance     assessment        process.               For         Teachers,            the         Manual         guides them through the basics in preparing and completing  RPMS documents. It describes the appropriate tools to assess performance and explains the different assessment phases for teachers. It also introduces the concept of annotations to guide teachers through critical reflection of their practices for their continuous improvement.

For          School   Heads   and        other     Raters,  this         Manual contains               all            the         information        needed to assess teacher performance. It provides a detailed reference to help in the understanding of the tools and the different phases of assessment within the  various cycles         of            RPMS,   ensuring              that        mechanisms       are         in            place     to         support teacher performance.
