The reform of China's higher education has been carried out steadily and deeply. Teaching and examination are the key parts to improve the quality of higher education. The effect and feedback of "TBL + Two stage exam" mode extensively adopted as teaching-test model in courses of University of British Columbia (UBC) are analyzed and summarized. The TBL teaching improves the efficiency in large class and the two-state exam is more like another mode of learning from partner rather than test. "TBL+ Two-state exam" changes the single-person exam manner and highlights the interaction of collaboration and communication among students, which will stimulate the enthusiasm of students for active learning, and cultivate students' social communication skills at the same time. The deficiencies and problems of "TBL+ Two-state exam" are discussed in this article. All these conclusions may provide some ideas for the reform of science curriculum in large-scale classes.

Key words: University of British Columbia, TBL teaching mode, Two-state exam, Higher education
