Initial research results revealed that the evaluation system had 3 main elements, namely, 1) intentional design, 2) outcome and performance monitoring, and 3) evaluation planning as well as 13 work procedures. Three boundary partners have achieved outcome challenges as follows: 1) Dean or Deputy Dean for Planning and Development Affairs has achieved 3 outcome challenges of 12 indicators, 2) research staffs have achieved 5 outcome challenges of 9 indicators, and 3) head of research projects have achieved 7 outcome challenges of 11 indicators. Better research behaviors and evaluation capacity in the sample groups were found comparable to those before the research with the statistical significance of .05. One could then say that the evaluation system boasts with utility, feasibility, propriety, and accuracy.
