Since the 1980s, great changes have taken place in the field of educational eval-uation. We have been transferring our focus from “examination culture” to “evaluation culture”, from focusing on the results to focusing on the process, from focusing on the knowledge of students to the comprehensive quality of students. These changes undoubtedly put forward higher requirements for teachers’ evaluation literacy, and it means that only teachers with a high level of evaluation literacy can be qualified for this change. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement in the evaluation literacy of English teachers in China. Therefore, this paper mainly combs the basic theory of English teacher evaluation literacy for Domestic middle school English teachers. It will discuss the status quo of teacher evaluation literacy in China and puts forward corresponding improvement methods.
