2010 Territory-wide System Assessment Report

     The Education Bureau today (October 29) received from the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) the report on the 2010 Territory-wide System Assessment (TSA). HKEAA will provide relevant data to schools shortly for purposes of school improvement.    

     "Some 195,000 students at Primary 3, Primary 6 and Secondary 3 levels took part in the TSA this year. Their performance in the three core subjects of Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics is steady," a spokesman for the Education Bureau said.

     Introduced in 2004 at Primary 3 and extended to cover higher levels over the years, the TSA aims to help schools understand students' performance in attaining basic competency, and their strengths and weaknesses in the core subjects of Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics at various key learning stages. It also helps schools devise suitable curriculum plans and strategies for learning and teaching to enhance student learning.

     "The Education Bureau will continue to support schools in the area of learning assessment by providing professional development programmes and targeted on-site school-based support services. Seminars will also be conducted to facilitate the sharing of good practice among schools and teachers," the spokesman said.

     The territory-wide percentages of students achieving basic competency in 2004-2010 are shown in the appendix. For details of the TSA and this year's results, please refer to the website at:
