Science and Biology Assessment in Hong Kong--Progress and Developments
Cheng, May Hung; Cheung, Wing Ming Francis
Journal of Biological Education, v40 n1 p11-16 2005
A paper was published in JBE in 2001 which examined the background of the education reform launched in 2000 in Hong Kong, and reviewed existing practices as well as beliefs in science and biology assessment among secondary teachers in Hong Kong. The direction of the reform was to take the emphasis away from public examinations as the sole evaluation of student learning, and encourage alternative forms of assessment. After two years of effort from the project team, changes in teachers' practices and beliefs about science and biology assessment are observed. Having described the progress and development made, this paper charts out future directions for teacher development. (Contains 4 tables, 1 figure and 1 footnote.)
