To promote cultural and information undertakings of the ethnic minorities such as digital publication and network governance, a series of experience training programs for nationalities universities are established to cultivate high-quality IT technology talents. Here, Dalian Nationalities University is taken as an example. These training programs adopted a so called "four-phrases, five capabilities" training method. That is, four phrases consist of professional quality training, professional basic theory strengthening, job skills training and job practice, centering on training five capabilities of professional morality, software programming fundamentals, language competence, software engineering and project practice. Based on the training method, one well-rounded and multiple perspective assessment method are put forward. This assessment system integrated academic knowledge evaluation and professional competence assessment, adopting various forms such as coding, competition, discussion, peer review online and deliverables exhibition. These practice training courses break through the knowledge barrier and put emphasis on professional competence cultivation, which improves teaching quality and assesses learning effects objectively and fairly during teaching process.
