Abstract – This study was undertaken to analyze the needs for training and development among
graduate school professors in a Private Higher Educational Institution (PHEI) based on the
performance standards and indicators during the Academic Year 2016-2017. The researcher
utilized descriptive cross-sectional design of research and statistical tools for the analysis of data.
The findings revealed that the professors were outstanding in meeting the objectives of the
graduate school program. They provided opportunities for independent study, utilized instructional
materials with depth and breadth expected for the graduate level, required students to make
extensive use of print and non-print reference materials, used instructional procedures and
techniques to encourage active students’ interaction; used interdisciplinary and/or
multidisciplinary approaches, whenever possible; and enforced definite rules and policies for
effective classroom management. Moreover, they were also outstanding in the implementation of
evaluation of students’ performance using researches, term papers, projects and other
requirements as indicators of the scholarly level of student achievement in every course, and in
giving final examination to measure the breadth and depth of student’s competency. However,
they were just satisfactory in demonstrating mastery of research skills as showed by their limited
number of research output, research-related activities and publications. Thus, professional growth
and development through further studies, research engagement and publications, and sharing of
knowledge or expertise with other institutions, agencies and the community can be initiated
among faculty members.
Keywords: Graduate education, professorial lecturers, performance standards, training and
