Performance evaluation is an important activity of any organization in improving the quality of work input, inspiring staffs making them more engaged. The purpose of the paper is to develop a technique to support the process of evaluating lecturer’s performance through the use of a new Dynamic Fuzzy Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (DFTOPSIS). In the proposed approach, the ratings of alternatives and importance weights of criteria for lecturer’s performance evaluation are represented by triangular fuzzy numbers in time sequence. A closeness coefficient determines the ranking order of alternatives by calculating the distances of alternatives to both the ideal and negative-ideal solutions. An application for lecturer’s performance evaluation is given to demonstrate the applicability and efficiency of the proposed approach.
