Taking the reform of soil mechanics experiment teaching in Guangdong University of Technology as an example, the characteristics and teaching effects of the three experimental assessment models are compared and analyzed. The traditional teaching and assessment mode (the assessment mode I is based on the "normal performance + experimental report"), and the formation of the "one-size-fits-all" experimental report can’t achieve the expected teaching effect. The assessment mode II includes normal performance, experimental report experimental, examinations, and the distribution of experimental results and teaching effects have been significantly improved. The results show that the test of experiment can adjust the students' interest in practice, cultivate hands-on ability , and the impact of the operation test is particularly significant. The "guide-design-experiment-report" four-part experimental teaching process and the whole-test mode (the assessment mode III) are in line with the "student-centered, results-oriented" engineering education concept, which can achieve the desired experimental teaching effect. The research shows that progressive teaching methods can achieve better experimental teaching results.
