15 Schools Accredited for Quality Assessment

This year 15 more primary and secondary schools were accredited for their commitment to adopting quality assessment practices, joining some hundred accredited schools in the Quality Assessment Management Accreditation Scheme (QAMAS) offered by the HKEAA since 2007.

As one of our initiatives to promote assessment literacy, the QAMAS aims at facilitating schools to establish effective mechanisms for continuous improvement in assessment management. During the certificate presentation ceremony held on 11 November 2017, representatives of the accredited schools shared their experience on how to enhance teaching and learning through diversified assessment strategies, as well as using the Assessment Quality-assurance Platform (AQP), a proprietary platform developed by the HKEAA to facilitate assessment data analysis.
