Document Type : Original Article



The aim of this research is designing a model of performance management with an emphasis on performance evaluation of higher education. In the first stage of the study, the approaches and models of performance management are discussed and, through a thematic method, the content extracted from the scientific literature at two-levels- "organization" and "people"- was classified. In the second stage, 27 variables inferred, in form of a questionnaire which was dispersed among a sample of 132 people who were selected from a 210 population of the country's planning system, applying persons. The collected data were analyzed using LISREL software. The results indicate that all 16 persons envisaged in the framework of the above-mentioned variables- as variables that must be considered in the design of performance management model- were approved. Also, according to the absolute value of the t-statistic for all the relationships between variables greater than the critical value of 1.96 and all the factor loadings greater than 0.5 obtained in standard mode, none of the relationships were rejected and all variables and relationships were confirmed and the initial version of the research was approved.
