According to the present invention, a method for evaluating a vitreous silica crucible, including the steps of: moving an internal ranging section along an inner surface of the vitreous silica crucible in a contactless manner; measuring a distance between the internal ranging section and the inner surface as a distance from the inner surface, by subjecting the inner surface of the crucible to irradiation with laser light and then detecting a reflected light from the inner surface, the laser light being emitted from the internal ranging section in an oblique direction with respect to the inner surface, and the measurement being conducted at a plurality of measuring points along a course of a movement of the internal ranging section; and obtaining a three-dimensional shape of the inner surface of the crucible, by associating three-dimensional coordinates of each of the measuring points with the distance from the inner surface, is provided..
