Season’s Greetings from the HKEAA

In this last issue of the HKEAA E-News for the year 2019, we would like to bring you up to date on the development of the HKEAA and express our gratitude for your support, which has enabled us to provide valid, reliable and equitable examinations and assessment services for the community.

We wish you all a peaceful holiday season and a Happy New Year!

Feedback Services for Enhancing Learning and Teaching

The 2019 HKDSE Question Papers of the 24 Category A subjects have been published in November 2019. In addition to the examination questions and the marking scheme, the HKEAA also provides relevant statistics and insightful comments on candidates’ performance in each subject. Samples of authentic answer scripts of 2019 HKDSE candidates to illustrate their performance at different levels are also available online. Check out these exemplars at the HKEAA website (choose subject needed→Samples of Candidates' Performance).

To cater for individual schools’ needs, we offer tailor-made School Statistical Reports enabling review of learning and teaching through analysis of students’ performance in the HKDSE. This year, about 370 schools ordered the School Statistical Reports.

The annual HKDSE Examination Report, providing an overview of the examination administration during the 2019 HKDSE and a wealth of examination statistics, is also available on the HKEAA website.

2020 HKEAA Open Day and Information Seminars

On Saturday 11 January 2020, the HKEAA will open the doors of its Tsuen Wan Assessment Centre to the public interested in the operation of public examinations. Visitors will be able to learn more about the marking and grading procedures of the HKDSE, try out various systems used in scanning of answer scripts, onscreen marking and recording of speaking examinations.

The popular HKDSE core subject information seminars will be held on 18 January 2020 to help familiarise senior secondary students with the assessment requirements of Chinese Language, English Language, Mathematics and Liberal Studies, subjects taken by the vast majority of HKDSE candidates.

Registration is now open and please visit the event page for details.

Donation of Used Computers to Schools

The HKEAA has been upgrading its Onscreen Marking System (OSM) and computers to enhance the quality and efficiency of marking scripts. As a socially responsible organisation, the HKEAA donated nearly 580 obsolete computers to 30 secondary schools for educational use on campus or in support of students’ after class learning.

At HKSYCIA Wong Tai Shan Memorial College, a number of Secondary 5 students studying Information and Communication Technology have used the computers to learn about operating system deployment, configuration and other information technology. Both teachers and students showed appreciation for our donation drive.

First introduced in 2007, OSM was adopted to improve the security, quality, reliability and efficiency of marking in public examinations. Marking is conducted in 12 HKEAA Assessment Centres, of which seven are housed in secondary schools.
