  Setting up on-campus assessment centres
 

To further implement the onscreen marking for the 2014 Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination, the HKEAA has linked up with more secondary schools to set up assessment centres in their campus.

Three on-campus assessment centres are opened recently in Tseung Kwan O, Sai Ying Pun and Fanling so teachers can take part in onscreen marking after class in the nearby centres.

There are a total of 10 assessment centers throughout the territory housing around 1,400 workstations for onscreen marking. This year, 4,400 markers and 580 marking assistants were appointed to assess the performance of candidates.

The marking of more than 1 million HKDSE scripts this year will be completed in June and the results will be released on 14 July 2014.

  Promotion of HKDSE to Australia
 

Mr Rock Chen Chung-nin, the Chairman of the HKEAA and Dr Tong Chong-sze, Secretary General visited Canberra recently as part of our mission to promote and to gain more recognition of the HKDSE in Australia. The delegation explained the latest development of the HKDSE to all the representatives presented in the annual meeting of the deputy vice-chancellors of Universities Australia, the peak body of the university sector of Australia.

They also visited the University of Melbourne, RMIT University and Australian National University and met with HKDSE graduates who are now studying in Australia. Admission officers of these universities regarded that the results of HKDSE were reliable and could serve as reference for making offer to applicants from Hong Kong.

A total of 173 tertiary institutions worldwide of which 33 universities in Australia have published their admission requirements for HKDSE holders. Details could be found at the HKEAA webpage.

 

  Delegation to the 40th IAEA Annual Conference
 

Dr Tong Chong-sze, Secretary General and Dr Thomas Cheung, Director of Development and Educational Assessment, together with some assessment specialists of the HKEAA attended the 40th International Association for Educational Assessment (IAEA) Annual Conference in Singapore between 25 - 30 May. The theme of this year was “Assessment Innovations for the 21st Century”.

During the 6-day conference the HKEAA delegation shared their experience and exchanged ideas with practitioners, researchers, policymakers and examination authorities around the world on knowledge in educational assessment, standard setting, online technology in assessment, as well as School-based Assessment (SBA). The delegation also reviewed the challenges and prospects of the HKDSE Examination in the conference and introduced the work of the HKEAA to the delegates.

IAEA is a non-governmental organisation for educational assessment. Its members include examining bodies, universities, research organisations and government agencies from more than 50 countries.
