Abstract

The general objective for talent training is to promote the comprehensive development of students, that is, to enhance the overall quality of students. The dominant mode of evaluating students in Chinese universities has long been summative evaluation centering on exam results, yet this is not enough. In this way, students will be directed to pursue only the learned knowledge and ignore other important things. To address this issue, we put forward a comprehensive quality evaluation system based on theories of overall development of talents, developmental evaluation and self-demand driving behavior by means of mixed research, interpretation of national policies, analysis of employing units’ demands, questionnaire survey on senior student workers and literature research. Except for specific indicators of the comprehensive quality evaluation system, we also develop practical operation & feedback program, i.e., taking the first three years of undergraduate stage as an evaluation cycle, and conducting an assessment for each semester. During implementation of this program, students can also perform informal evaluation for themselves, and the head teacher, according to the results of formal and informal evaluation, should accordingly instruct and give feedbacks to students. This evaluation system lays more emphasis on quantitative analysis, and less on qualitative analysis. Process-monitoring feedback and operability also feature this system. Four years have passed when this system was adopted to students of Grade 2013 and Grade 2014 at X university, and the data of students assessed by the original evaluation system and those assessed by this comprehensive quality evaluation system is obviously different.
