  • Abstract Since the 1970s, Anglo-American countries have begun to attach importance to
    educational accountability. In view of the limited national resources, people advocate
    the universities accept inject resources while also assuming the responsibility to make
    good use of them, and must allow the public to understand the operation of the
    University of achievement, that is its educational effectiveness. However, it is not easy
    to measure the effectiveness of education. Among the many ways, building the
    educational evaluation system is seen as the most direct and effective way. Many
    countries began to establish a series of educational standards for the domestic education
    system. They are in an attempt to get objectivity, reliable measure results, and periodic
    evaluation through a consistent standard, to ensure the enhancement of the quality of
    university education.
    Taiwan was affected by this trend, and in 2007, we also published university
    evaluation approach, the sources of law of the formal establishment of the university
    evaluation system. Under the Government’s active implement of evaluation system, the
    current higher education accreditation system has been completely dominated by the
    evaluation system, which forms a culture of evaluation. It is curious that this study, our
    evaluation system’s development so far, whether it has certainly enhanced the quality of
    higher education as our original concept? Although in the past numerous university
    evaluation studies have been published, there was little literature that explored the
    university evaluation system’s effect on university education from a holistic point of
    view. Therefore, this study is to analyze the educational system through systems
    thinking within the four major participants: the interactions between university,
    government, industry, and teacher. We use them to explore the impact of university
    evaluation system brings.
    In this study, we use literature analysis and interviews to collect data, and system
    archetypes to analyze the impact of evaluation system by government. After analysis,
    the study found that evaluation system can play a role of supervision in the short term,
    but in the long run, it will produce many unexpected side effects, which are not
    conducive to the development of Taiwan's higher education system. Finally, this
    research tries to provide suggestions for the current evaluation system of Taiwan, from
    the perspective of systems thinking, hoping to improve the impact that current system of
    evaluation brings.
