background
Background
  • Third consultation conducted in late 2006
  • New public assessment of HKCEE English Language first implemented in 2007
  • Further consultation in the light of the 2007 HKCEE experience
  • Questionnaire survey conducted in January 2008
implication of moderation results
Implication of Moderation Results
  • Mean and spread of the SBA marks submitted by the majority of schools fall within the expected range
  • Most teachers have a good understanding of the assessment criteria and can assess their students accurately
  • Reliability of SBA not an issue
  • Fairness ensured by statistical moderation
possible explanations
Possible Explanations
  • Students in “Yes” and “Trial” schools had more speaking practice in school because of the SBA
  • They became more confident with the public exam format, which involves similar speaking tasks – group discussion and individual response
  • Positive backwash effect of the SBA on the ability to speak English and to interact with peers in different contexts.
effect of sba on speaking exam1
Effect of SBA on Speaking Exam
  • Students in “Yes” schools got higher marks in the SBA than in the speaking exam
  • Students in “Yes” and “Trial” schools got higher marks in the public speaking exam than those in “No” schools
  • BUT “Yes” and “Trial” schools may just be better schools
effect of sba on speaking exam3
Effect of SBA on Speaking Exam
  • Students in “Yes” schools did better than expected based on prediction from written papers (+0.25)
  • Students in “Trial” schools did slightly better than expected (+0.03)
  • Students in “No” schools did significantlyworse than expected in the speaking exam (-0.35)
congeneric measures model analysis
Congeneric Measures Model Analysis
  • Strong evidence that the various components are measuring a single underlying ability
  • Reliability of components .882 to .702
  • R > L&IS > W > SBA > S
  • SBA (.753) more reliable than speaking exam (.702)
main focus of questionnaire
Main focus of questionnaire
  • Assessment of the modules in the Elective Part
  • Replacing the speaking exam with SBA
  • The need for strategic implementation of SBA in 2012 HKDSE
  • Teachers’ satisfaction with the level of support provided by the HKEAA and the EDB
results
Results
  • Responses measured on 6-point scale
  • 3.5 adopted as minimum level of acceptability
rationale for the revised framework
Rationale for the Revised Framework
  • Teachers need to deal with HKCEE, HKALE and HKDSE from 2009 to 2012
  • Speaking exam retained for school candidates as the majority of teachers do not favour its replacement by SBA
  • Weighting of SBA component reduced from 20% to 15% and weighting of Part B of Writing paper reduced from 20% to 15% so that 10% can be allocated to the Speaking exam
  • The total number of SBA marks to be submitted reduced from 4 to 3 to address teachers’ concerns about workload.
  • Weighting of SBA component reduced to 15%, which is the same as the 2007 HKCEE
