A questionnaire investigation of academic staff and teaching administrators at Shanghai Normal University and Shanghai Fisheries University shows that the evaluation of the standards of undergraduate teaching work has had positive effects on teaching work and that setting up an evaluation system is an effective measure for assuring the quality of higher education. The study also reveals some of the characteristics of the evaluation's effects: Teaching administrators are more positive about the evaluation than academic staff; the effects of the evaluation on teaching and teaching administration are greater than their effect on students' studies; the evaluation's extrinsic effects are stronger than its intrinsic effects on teaching work; and the evaluation's effects on teaching work may gradually weaken as time passes.
