Organic chemistry laboratory is highly practical, time-consuming, and high-risk. Hence, it is of great significance to formulate a scientific and reasonable evaluation system. The traditional evaluation method, mainly adopting the combination of lab performance and report, has problems such as single evaluation subject, single method, vague standard, single content, etc., which is obviously far from the requirements of new-type talent training. Therefore, the reform and innovation of evaluation methods are in imperative. Firstly, this article systematically sorts out the different evaluation methods of current organic chemistry laboratory, including comprehensive evaluation methods, index evaluation methods, competition mode evaluation methods, diversified evaluation methods and formative evaluation methods. Secondly, this article introduces in detail the evaluation method of the "three stages and five dimensions" of organic chemistry laboratory at Chongqing University of Education. This method makes full use of the three stages before class, during class and after class, and focuses on cultivating "five skills" applied talents who can consult, design, operate, write and manage. Finally, this article sorts out different evaluation methods to provide a reference for the subsequent construction of a more scientific organic chemistry experimental evaluation system, and better serve the cultivation of talents.
