English term or phrase: possible
[Conclusion]
It could be concluded that the education evaluation table we proposed, was usable. Moreover, although acupuncture schools have various evaluation methods for electroacupuncture in basic clinical training, there were no differences between the three groups, so that it is suggested that there is a possibility of standardizing the evaluation method.

Is it better to change the last part as follwos?
it is suggested that standardizing the evaluation method is possible.

I feel that possibility indicates lower possibility than to be possible.

English translation:the evaluation method may/can be standardized
Explanation:
You can simply use "may" or "can" to show that the standardization is possible. Although I am not a native speaker, I have reworded your paragraph as below so that it will be easier for your native checker to work on. Since I don't quite understand the situation regarding the second half of the paragraph, I couldn't make it shorter, though. (I also had to assume a lot of things that were not clear.)

Our proposed education evaluation table may be valid for actual use. Moreover, the evaluation method may be standardized as no significant differences were observed among the three groups in spite of varying evaluation methods employed by the acupuncture schools for evaluating students' electroacupuncture administration in their basic clinical training.
