The Value Orientation of Higher Vocational Education Evaluation: A Textual Analysis of an Evaluation Program
Wang, Yonglin; Wang, Zhanjun
Chinese Education & Society, v49 n1-2 p60-71 2016
Education evaluation should be based on human development and revolve around educational institutions integrating two dimensions, the development needs of the nation and society, and the logic and laws of self-development. The value orientation of higher vocational education evaluation in China is actually expressed through enhancing quality awareness, normalizing education standards, strengthening the central position of teaching, highlighting the characteristics of institutions, changing the focus of the evaluation based on developments in society, and using evaluation concepts in keeping with the times. Due to late start, less experience, and rapid development, there have inevitably been theoretical and practical shortcomings in the evaluation of higher vocational education in China. The value orientation of higher vocational education evaluation should combine instrumental rationality and value rationality, investigate the implicit factors associated with education quality, increase the inherent motivation of institutions to participate in evaluations, promote the separation of governance, management, and evaluation, and conduct normalized, continuous, and dynamic monitoring of teaching quality.
