We shall accurately understand the essential meaning of education with focus on morality--- a fundamental standard for appraisal of education in schools of various levels. Teachers’ code of morality, together with achievements and effectiveness of teaching, shall be viewed as one of the most important standards in educational appraisal. Efforts shall be paid to reform of faculty appraisal so as to put the appropriate people on appropriate posts.
Wang Yongsheng notes that there are three levels in reform of national educational appraisal: school, faculty, and students. The two core factors of the reform are code of morality and competence. Under the new system of appraisal, it is necessary to review BISTU appraisal system of academic research. Academic appraisal shall act as a guiding role in educational development.
