A warm welcome to new HKEAA Council members

Since assuming office in September, Dr So Kwok-sang, the new Secretary General of the HKEAA, has been formulating development plans to promote ‘Assessment for Learning’ which will reinforce our support and feedback to schools, teachers and candidates. He attended his first Council Meeting recently and was delighted to extend his warm welcome to three newly appointed members, Ms Jane Leung Chui-chun, Ms Katherine Cheung Marn-kay and Dr Albert Chau Wai-lap representing the Heads of Universities Committee (HUCOM).

Mr Rock Chen Chung-nin, Chairman of the Authority, expressed confidence in the future development of the HKEAA under the leadership of Dr So and thanked members for their participation and contribution to Council affairs.

The Authority Council is the highest governing body of the HKEAA and its members are either appointed by the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administration Region, nominated by the HUCOM or are ex-officio members. Please visit our website for details.

Recognition of our quality customer service

For six years in a row, HKEAA staff members have been recognised by The Ombudsman for outstanding performance in customer care. The proud awardees this year are Mr Kickers Ng Chun-fung and Miss Tse Ka-wing, who are committed to providing assistance to candidates of different examinations and handling enquiries pertaining to the HKEAA Code on Access to Information respectively.

Dr So Kwok-sang, Secretary General said, ‘The Awards have given great encouragement to the entire HKEAA team as our efforts and professionalism in client servicing are well recognised, and they exemplify the commitment of the Authority to constantly improving examination administration and various services.’

The HKEAA was also named the runner-up of The Ombudsman’s Awards for Public Organisations in 2014 and a total of nine staff members have been commended by The Ombudsman since 2012.

Raising assessment literacy at schools

As part of our 40th anniversary programmes and to raise assessment literacy, 40 schools are now able to conduct analysis of examination data on the web-based Assessment Quality-assurance Platform (AQP) for free during the 2017/18 academic year. The AQP is a proprietary platform developed by the HKEAA to facilitate teachers to identify the specific learning needs of different students while enhancing assessment quality. Know more about AQP.

To promote ‘Assessment for Learning’, we are more committed than ever to raise assessment literacy in the school community. Since 2007, we have run the Quality Assessment Management Accreditation Scheme (QAMAS) which aims at elevating the standards of examination and assessment management in schools. More than 100 schools have joined the Scheme, this year the QAMAS Certificate Presentation Ceremony and experience sharing session will be held on 11 November.

The QAMAS is open to all primary and secondary schools. For enquiries, please email to qamas@hkeaa.edu.hk.

Employment opportunities for the disadvantaged

The HKEAA has always been keen in providing equal employment opportunities for all and has joined the Talent-Wise Employment Charter and Inclusive Organisations Recognition Scheme to support persons with disabilities recently. Not only have we contemplated suitable positions for persons with disabilities but also adjusted work processes to accommodate them. We believe in social inclusion where persons with disabilities are able to integrate and exercise their full potential.

To further demonstrate our commitment as a socially responsible organisation, we also support caring consumptions by contracting cleaning and catering services provided by social enterprises as well as suppliers employing the disadvantaged.
