Teachers as facilitators of learning play a great role in evaluating, and adapting instructional materials used for instruction that meet students’ needs since they have direct contact with the students. This study determined the acceptability level of the Department of Education (DepEd)- produced Grade 7 Biology Modules as perceived by Science teachers in all the 16 public secondary schools in the Division of Tacloban City, Leyte, Philippines. Descriptive survey method and quantitative analysis were employed. The assessment of the modules focused on the seven dimensions namely: a) content, b) presentation and organization, c) learning activities, d) evaluation activities, e) accuracy and up-to-dateness of information, f) format and g) sufficiency on the availability of modules.
