Ideological work in colleges and universities is an extremely important work. Ideological and political theory course is the main channel of ideological work in colleges and universities. The effectiveness of Ideological and political theory course depends on the teaching level of teachers. However, the current evaluation system of professional title is the shackle of improving the teaching level of ideological and political theory teachers in local ordinary universities, which is mainly reflected in the following two aspects. One is focusing on scientific research rather than teaching;The other is ignoring the particularity of ideological and political theory course teachers in local ordinary universities.The current evaluation system of professional title adhered to the "geocentric theory" mode:high level of scientific research is equivalent to high level of teaching. This is not suitable for teachers of ideological and political theory courses in local ordinary universities who require a wide range of knowledge, update knowledge quickly and have a low level of scientific research. Therefore, the reform on the evaluation system of professional title should follow "heliocentric theory" mode: the teacher's high level of knowledge equals high level of teaching. The teacher's teaching level depends on the teacher's knowledge level.Teachers' knowledge level can be tested by examinations. Copernicus style Revolution is a metaphor for replacing the evaluation system of professional title with examinations. It is necessary to scientifically design the reliability and validity of the test of ideological and political theory course and the operability of the test scheme to replace the current evaluation professional system of title by examinations.Copernican style Revolution can provide important references for the assessment and evaluation of other professional teachers, professionals and civil servants, as well as teachers of ideological and political theory course in local ordinary universities.
