After years of implementation, Taiwan has invested a great deal of manpower and resources in the evaluation of senior high schools, but has the evaluation achieved the expected results? This issue deserves further exploration. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to conduct a questionnaire survey to understand whether high school educators perceive the benefit of school evaluation and to make an overall comparison with the results of a previous survey (2015). The research tool utilized in this study is the " Indicators of Evaluation-Benefit for Senior High Schools," developed by the researcher, employing a six-point Likert scale. The evaluation benefit is divided into two dimensions: school management and academic development. Within school management, it further examines administrative effectiveness, resource integration, organizational interaction, and environmental improvement. For academic development, it assesses curriculum planning, teacher professionalism, and student performance abilities. According to the test results of SEM confirmatory factor analysis, the tool has a good fitness evaluation index and meets the model's intrinsic fitness test. The formal questionnaire samples include principals, directors, section chiefs and teachers, totalling 780 participants with 582 valid responses. The statistical methods used include descriptive statistics, one-way ANOVA, and t-tests. The main research findings are as follows: 1) The overall benefit of high school evaluation, school management, and academic development are all at a medium level, as are the eight subdimensions. 2) The highest-scoring subdimensions are administrative effectiveness in school management and the curriculum planning in academic development. 3) Educators from private and large schools have a higher perception of evaluation benefit. 4) The scores of evaluation benefit in this study are lower than those of the previous survey.
