Formative assessment of college curriculum teaching refers to the assessment of the performance and effect of college students' learning process in the process of college curriculum teaching. Each form can also contain several items. According to the teaching forms of different modes of teaching in colleges and universities, the nature and characteristics of courses, the types of examinations are selected to carry out formative examinations. As universities pay too much attention to summary evaluation, to a certain extent, it weakens the normal exertion of examination function and the realization of educational goals, which not only affects the quality of higher education, but also affects the learning enthusiasm of the majority of students and hinders the cultivation of high-quality talents. “Aronson Effect” is a common psychological effect, which has a significant effect on the behavior changes of students. Based on this article, from the perspective of “Aronson Effect”, this paper discusses an effective, practical and scientific formative assessment scheme under process control to improve the teaching quality of the specialized courses and promote the improvement of students' professional quality and application ability.
