virtue education, teaching evaluation, self-efficacy, index system, CASI-V


Virtue education is an effective way to cultivate youth’s values through their day-to-day learning activities. However, it is difficult to evaluate the effectiveness due to the implicit and accumulative property of virtue education, which is coherently consistent with self-efficacy. Thus, a processive evaluation model for Business English (BE) was designed, in which, virtue education is divided into three dimensions, and their coherence with self-efficacy is supported by literature. A 3-level index system was constructed based on CIPP. As a core component of this evaluation system, a bilingual 35-item College Academic Self-efficacy Inventory from Virtue Perspective (CASI-V) was developed, which is derived from CASI. The reliability and validity analysis were then conducted to test the quality of the scale. The results show that the instrument is qualified to be used in subsequent research.
