To improve the quality of teachers' teaching in research universities and help teachers diagnose their teaching effects, the study used the questionnaire to do the research on satisfaction of the courses and teachers. Through statistical analysis of data, the following conclusions are drawn: The student's overall satisfaction with the quality of courses and teachers is “good”; Students' satisfaction of teachers’ attitude is higher than teaching ability; There are different degrees of correlation between teacher elements, course elements and assessment scores; Teachers who mainly train postgraduate students are generally got lower scores than those train undergraduates. According to the research results, researchers proposed effective suggestions to improve teachers' behavior and quality for research universities.
