1 Assessment Development in Hong Kong September, 2006 Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority 1

2 2 Need of Hong Kong Community … we must address the inadequacies within the existing education system to enable the majority of Hong Kong people to achieve lifelong learning and all-round education. All-in-all, despite the huge resources put into education and the heavy workload endured by teachers, learning effectiveness of students remains not very promising, learning is still examinations-driven and scant attention is paid to learning-to-learn. [1] [1] [1] Learning for Life, Learning through Life, Education Commission, September 2000, p4.

3 3 Need of Hong Kong Community The ultimate purpose of assessment should be to provide information that helps promote learning and teaching, and form part of the teaching process. However, in reality, tests and examinations have become the baton directing learning and teaching … In short, teachers students, parents and society in general should shake off their traditional concept of assessment and embrace the new assessment culture. [1] [1] [1] Ibid, p70
