Evaluation in Higher Education

This paper is written on the basis of theoretical and practical research of the evaluation in higher education. Theoretically, evaluation is defined as a process of investigation, judgment, and result declaration. Practically, evaluation in higher education is different from any other kinds of evaluation since the development of the teaching and learning and research in higher education relies heavily on staff's brains work inside universities and social funds outside universities. The comparison between Australian and Chinese evaluation in higher education has exposed both the similarities and differences between them and shows that western and eastern people can still learn from each other whatever the social systems are. The recommendations based on Australian evaluation experiences in higher education are made in order to add values to Chinese evaluation in higher education. Evaluation in higher education has made and will go on making contributions to higher education all over the world even though there are still some issues unresolved.
