The objective of this paper was to design, develop and evaluate a causal model of teachers’ attitude toward the
performance evaluation system (PES) with the mediating role of teachers’ sense of efficacy on job satisfaction and
organizational commitment. The study population included all teachers of male-only high schools in Tehran. 117
teachers were selected as the sample population using availability sampling. The present study is an applied
research in terms of its objective and a descriptive research in terms of its data collection method. Furthermore, the
study uses a correlational research design through structural equation modeling. In order to measure the study
variables, the following questionnaires were used: Teachers’ Attitude toward Performance Evaluation, Teachers’
Sense of Efficacy, Job Satisfaction and Organizational Commitment. The results showed that teachers’ attitude
toward the performance evaluation system had a significant positive effect on job satisfaction, organizational
commitment and self-efficacy. Also, teachers’ sense of efficacy had a significant positive effect on job satisfaction.
Moreover, the results showed that teachers’ attitude to the performance evaluation system had a positive and
significant effect on organizational commitment with the mediating role of self-efficacy. Thus, the present study
verified the causal model of teachers’ attitude toward the performance evaluation system with the mediating role of
teachers’ sense of efficacy. Finally, the structural equation modeling reflects the positive impact of teachers’
attitude toward Iran’s Ministry of Education’s employee performance evaluation system on job satisfaction, sense of
efficacy and organizational commitment.

Keywords: performance evaluation, sense of efficacy, job satisfaction, organizational commitment, teachers.
