SED on Territory-wide System Assessment
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung, at a media session after attending the opening ceremony of the Mainland-Hong Kong Life Planning Education Symposium today (November 2):    
Reporter: Mr Yeung, what do you think are the implications of the results of the test (2017 Territory-wide System Assessment) and what will the Government do with the test? How will it develop?
Secretary for Education: I think the report or results that we released yesterday show that roughly or generally the performance of our students is very stable, and it also shows us different aspects of the test, because they have also asked some questions and done some surveys with the parents and discussion groups with the parents and the schools as well. So what the Committee (the Coordinating Committee on Basic Competency Assessment and Assessment Literacy) is going to do is they will have further studies and then they will come back to us by end of December or early January with some recommendations on how the test should be conducted in future years or whether it should be conducted, and then the Government will make a decision.
