This study determines the research capability and productivity of the Don Severino Agricultural College in Indang, Cavite.The evaluation focused on the context-input-process-product components of the program. Data were gathered through the administration of a set of questionnaires to 19 administrators, 85 faculty members, 86 senior college students, 109 technicians, and 20 farmers-cooperators. College administrators were likewise interviewed. Additional data were obtained through analysis of extant documents. The study adopted a descriptive-evaluative research design using Stufflebeam's CIPP model. Possible correlates and predictors of administrators and faculty research productivity were also examined.In terms of context evaluation, findings revealed that the College had the necessary manpower, set-up, policies, procedures, and support for the implementation of its research program. The research program was one of the College's priorities.Administrators and faculty members perceived that the goals and objectives of the research program were highly congruent to the mission of the College and highly relevant to the needs of the community. They were highly aware of the program's goals and objectives. Likewise, results revealed that the expectations of all the respondents, except the students were met to a moderate extent. Students' expectations were met to a great extent.

Among the research inputs evaluated, educational qualifications of administrators and faculty, land areas, and library seating capacity met the minimum standard set by the Technical Panel for Agricultural Education (TPAE). The College maintained support services for research programs and established external research linkages. College administrators expressed satisfaction over its research linkages.Process evaluation revealed that problems encountered in the management of the research program were those related to personnel, funding, system of rewards and incentives, recognition, linkages, leadership, and the College's research thrust.With reference to product evaluation, College administrators, faculty members, students, technicians, and farmer-cooperators derived benefits from the program in varying degrees. In general, administrators and faculty members were only slightly productive in research. The number of ongoing researches were above the minimum standards set by TPAE and that the researches produced were in line with the goals and objectives of the research program.Among the variables considered, academic rank, educational attainment, position, research training, income, years in research, time devoted to research were found to be significantly related to research productivity of administrators and faculty. Of these factors, however, only educational attainment, position in the College, number of research-related training attended, and number of years in research work were found to be predictors of research productivity.
