Hong Kong has been making steady progessand remained within top 10 from late 90s.

“Reasoning” better than/comparable to “Knowing’, while in the past students did better in “Knowing”.


Ranked 2nd/3rd in scientific literacy among participating countries/regions

from kla evaluation about student assessment

From KLA Evaluation – About Student Assessment

Majority of teachers agreed that:

Set appropriate assessment tasks (including practical and non-practical tasks) to align with the learning objective

Use assessment data or information to provide quality feedback to students

Students in general agreed that:

Their teachers helped them to learn and understandtheir strengths and weaknesses

Building on Strengths


Way Forward

Continuous Promotion of Holistic Curriculum Planning & development in the Sci Edu KLA for a balanced school-based curriculum

Curriculum, Pedagogy, Assessment form a trio

Strengthening PIE Cycle (Planning, Implementation and Evaluation) in school-based curriculum development

Strengthening the interface between different learning stages

Enhancing collaboration among teachers

from student assessment to enhancing student learning

From Student Assessment to Enhancing Student Learning

To identify and tackle students’ learning difficulties To develop relevant teaching strategies for enhancing learning effectiveness

To enhance teachers’ awareness on the importance of reflective teaching based on students’ performance in daily formative assessment

To build up teachers’ capacity in developing quality assessment items

To enhance teachers’ assessment literacy
