Instrumental analysis is the eyes of all research fields. The instrumental analysis course is one of the main courses of university chemistry, and the learning of instrumental analysis course is related to the final output of all chemical disciplines. As an important part of effective teaching and learning, the assessment and feedback can not only evaluate the efficiency, but also guide how to improve teaching and learning. At present, the teaching and learning efficiency of instrumental analysis course is mainly evaluated by homework, classroom quizzes, mid-term and final exam results. The current assessment of instrumental analysis course has the problems of limited forms, the delayed feedback, and the poor interaction of "teaching" and "learning". This paper briefly introduces the reform and practice of effective assessment and feedback in instrumental analysis teaching of Boling class of Nankai University, mainly including three aspects: (1) strengthen the process feedback and let students summarize the points and rules; (2) let students become the center of effective assessment; and (3) carry out the item evaluation of literature reading.

Key words: Instrumental analysis, Effective teaching and learning, Effective assessment, Creatively study and apply
