Abstract

Teaching evaluation refers to the process of measuring and giving value judgment to the process and results of teaching activities by using effective technical means. Through teaching evaluation, teachers can direct the teaching process to develop toward the predetermined goal and effectively complete the teaching task. This paper investigates the function of teaching evaluation in the Machine Translation course in Northeastern University. The function of teaching evaluation for teachers includes adjustment, diagnosis, teaching stimulation, and orientation. The function of teaching evaluation for students includes feedback, guidance, intensification, and purpose orientation. This paper also discusses the influence of teaching evaluation on the psychology of both, teachers and students. Positive evaluation can improve the enthusiasm of teachers and students, but other times, it may reduce their enthusiasm, whereas when negative evaluation and guidance are appropriate, the enthusiasm of teachers and students may improve. This research reveals that a reasonable teaching evaluation plays a huge role in promoting the psychology of both, teachers and students.
