1.1 The Cause for Implementation of Online Evaluation of Teaching

It has become a routine means to conduct evaluation on teaching by students that undergraduates make an online evaluation of teaching through the module of evaluation of teaching within the educational management system. Ever since 2007 when Changchun University of Science and Technology conducted evaluation on undergraduate education and teaching level organized by the Ministry of Education, online evaluation of teaching has gone through six springs and autumns. During this period, the online teaching evaluation system has been continuously improved and the indicator of evaluation of teaching has been modified.
