Assessment for Learning

Chapter 2 focuses on the assessment practices in Hong Kong. It gives an overview of the historical assessment system in Hong Kong. In recent years, there has been a call from the Hong Kong SAR government that schools should not only focus on measuring learning outcomes but also employ assessment to support learning. This chapter presents the assessment reform initiated by the government, including Basic Competency Assessment (BCA) and school-based assessment (SBA) and other related issues. Some discussion has been focused on the challenges of the assessment reform, the roles of teachers in assessment, and the types of actions teachers need to take to link assessment with learning.

Keywords:   Basic Competency Assessment (BCA), School-based Assessment (SBA), Assessment reform, Assessment practices, Learning outcomes
