Every Higher Education Institution needs to develop faculty researchers from its faculty line up who can share their time and expertise to produce research outputs while performing their responsibilities as classroom teachers and sometimes as school managers. This study aims to compare the result of faculty performance evaluation from students and the faculty profile when they are categorized based on their research involvement. Descriptive type of research method with inferential statistics using Chi-square test and Guttmanís Coefficient of predictability as statistical tools was utilized to describe the result of the study. Results showed that there are more female masterís degree holders with hourly rate from Php 251 to 350 who have active research involvement than males and bachelorís degree and doctorate degree holders. Faculty researchers have significantly higher performance evaluation rating from the students compared to non-researchers. Those with higher Instructional and Diagnostic expertise among faculty members showed higher possibility of becoming faculty researcher. Faculty members may also be required to write books or instructional manuals as a form of research output. If they will be written their own material to be utilized in their own respective classes, mastery or the subject expertise may be fully achieved. They were encouraged to conduct more funded researches from the government and private agencies during the transition period of the Philippine Education in the K-12 implementation.
