|We have been administering the Territory-wide System Assessment (TSA) at P3, P6 (implemented in alternate year starting from 2011) and S3 on behalf of the EDB since 2004. All schools under government subsidization need to participate in the TSA at a definite period of time.
The TSA is an assessment administered at the territory level. It facilitates assessment for learning by providing schools with objective data on students' performances in the three subjects of Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics at the end of Key Stages 1-3. The TSA reports and school reports provide information about students' strengths and weaknesses against specific Basic Competencies. They help schools and teachers to enhance their plans on learning and teaching. The territory-wide data also help the Government to review policies and to provide focused support to schools.
