The purpose of the study is to explore the relationship between teaching evaluation and lecturers’ performances. To achieve this purpose, the study analysed the correlations between teaching evaluation scores by student and evaluation on lecturers’ performances by dean, and between teaching evaluation scores by student and students’ final examination results. Census study was applied to collect all data, which involved 124 lecturers and eight deans. The study used data from the online system, which involved evaluation made for 246 courses by all active students in semester June – November 2018. Descriptive and inferential statistics were applied in this study and analysed using SPSS version 21.0. The result showed that there is no significant relationship between teaching evaluation scores by student and evaluation on lecturers’ performances by dean. This study also found that there is no significant relationship between teaching evaluation scores by student and students’ final examination results. Based on the findings, the study inferred there is bias in the evaluation instruments and there are external factors contributed to the outcome of insignificant correlations in both analyses, thus the effect or impact of the evaluation system to academic division is not significant
