Abstract
In the context of the internationalization of education, the implementation of the credit system has become the consensus of the higher education sector. At present, various types of credit systems including the Complete Academic Credit System, the Annual Credit System and the Grade Point Average System, etc. are widely implemented in mainland’s universities. In this paper, the unique Elastic Standard Academic Credit System is introduced. Within the system, the standard credit value is based on the learning require-ments of different disciplines and the cognition capability of the student group, allowing elasticity in the quantitative val-uation in the individual learning capabil-ity variation with scientific manner. The system has been implemented in Jinan University for seven years and generated positive effect. It successfully keeps a good balance between The Complete Credit System and Annual Credit System, which meets the practical needs of Chi-na’s national condition and has im-portance significance for the implementation of academic credit system in China’s higher education.
