The report of the Chinese 20th National Congress put forward “strengthening the construction and management of textbooks” for the first time, which indicates the importance of textbook construction and highlights the vital position of textbooks in the overall development of the country. From the perspective of textbook quality, and based on the research and analysis of the policy requirements and current evaluation indicators of higher education textbooks, this paper establishes the textbook quality evaluation index system composed of basic indicators and evaluation indicators. This system is based on the principles of science, comprehensiveness, operability, and target-oriented approach. It provides a relatively scientific, objective, and fair reference system for the management and evaluation of textbooks.
