To solve the problems of analytical hierarchy process(AHP), some concrete advices were put forward according to the practice of teacher achievement's assessment. The major advice is to enhance the combination between AHP and fuzzy comprehensive assessment(FCA). At first, as many experts as possible should be invited to improve the quality of judgment matrix. At the same time, the value of quantitative information should be developed efficiently and the quantitative and qualitative information should be synthesized to make the assessment comprehensive. All the methods including AHP and FCA have strong points and shortcomings. If there are many objects to assess and a not so exact result is expected, FCA should be used, but AHP should better be thought about to determine the power of the factors. If there are not so many objects to assess and a very exact result is expected, AHP may be the best method.
