Abstract
A preliminary evaluation system of general education teaching quality in universities was established based on Bloom's objective classification method from four aspects: teaching objectives, teaching content, implementation process and assessment methods, in view of the impersonality of the evaluation and assessment of teaching quality, the difficulty of evaluation for the supervisory department in teaching, and the difficulty of the refinement and quantification of teaching achievements. A grey relational analysis method was used to establish the evaluation criteria, and then the evaluation model of teachers' general education quality was established. The index system and evaluation model were applied to evaluate many young teachers’ education quality in a university. The evaluation results show that: the evaluation system can be used to evaluate the teaching ability of general courses of young teachers, rank them comprehensively, and find out the aspects to be improved. According to the teaching evaluation results, teachers can analyze their ranking among peers, and find out their own advantages and disadvantages. It has theoretical and practical significances for improving the teaching quality of general courses in universities.
