In MSA, we use "feedback system" instead of "evaluation system".  As the center of the feedback system, students can learn about their latest learning achievements through feedback, and adjust their learning methods and states in a timely manner.

MSA has two basic educational philosophies, namely "learner-centered education" and "core competence-based learning". Our teaching system aims to help learners master the core competences needed for their future development. Traditional exams can efficiently test learners' memorizing and retelling of the textbook knowledge, but when educational goals are upgraded from knowledge to more complex core competences (including three dimensions of knowledge, skills and attitudes), such as creative thinking, the traditional exam-centered evaluation system becomes inadequate to accurately reflect the students' learning progress.

In MSA, we name our system with “Feedback System” instead of “Evaluation System“, which is used for collecting and demonstrating learners' learning progress. This naming is based on our basic cognition, that is, the subject of "evaluation" is the rater who passes the results of evaluation to the learner. The subject of "feedback", however, are learners themselves who collect information from various channels according to development goals to determine their learning progress.

Based on the cultivation goal of "fulfilled individuals, active citizens", we have defined the core competence model for MSA students, which forms the foundation of the whole feedback system.

The development of students’ competences should be clearly defined. On one hand, it allows students to figure out what are important development goals, and have a clearer understanding of their ability levels; on the other, it guides mentors to set the teaching goals and organize the teaching contents, so that the teaching can be focused on the content that really matters.

The capability model of MSA (see Fig. as below) is divided into three aspects: personal development, social cooperation and thinking tools, each of which consists of three specific qualities.
