Abstract: It's required that students' comprehensive quality assessment should be included as a reference in university admission, according to China's new university entrance examination reform. In theory, comprehensive quality means individual's ability to solve complex tasks in specific contexts, which is characterized by integrity, comprehensiveness and individuality. The assessment of students' comprehensive quality should focus on how they solve problems in real life. At the policy level, comprehensive quality is divided into different dimensions and high schools are required to keep a record, which will be used for reference in the admission process. In practice, on the other hand, some universities in Shanghai are exploring how to assess the comprehensive quality by means of university activities, referring to the report by high schools and examination score to improve the reform. To strength capacity-building of admission, universities should strive to improve the professionalism of assessment by providing sufficient resource in support of the admission processes.

Key words: comprehensive quality assessment, Shanghai, self-enrolment
