|摘要(英文)：||Since 1976, the Hong Kong Education Department has provided a series of Chinese, English, and Mathematics attainment tests for Primary 1 to Secondary 3 students (HKAT). The system has a number of problems including item leakage and heavy workload in marking. In this article, we would like to introduce a new educational assessment project to be implemented in the recent educational reform, which included a computerized student assessment service that students could take any time they liked and a monitoring system that assessed the schools every year.The following have been considered in the implementation of this system: offering diagnostic information for learning, assessing and monitoring individual schools, avoiding unhealthy drilling by teachers and schools that hampers normal teaching, changing parental emphases on student ranking to a focus on their improvement, and allowing sufficient flexibility for future reform.The student assessment service is a large computerized assessment self-learning system. It covers Chinese, English and Mathematics in Primary 1 to Secondary 3. The questions are scored by the computers to reduce teachers’ work load. This is a low stake service to help individual students and the government promises to provide appropriate remedial teaching materials to help and improve students’ diagnosed weaknesses.The territory-wide school assessment system will be conducted once a year at Primary 3, 6 and Secondary 3 on Chinese, English and English. Matrix sampling will be used to cover a large curriculum. The system attempts to monitor the standard of all Hong Kong students and will also generate reports to individual schools as feedback on their teaching.We will describe the strengths of the above project, and discuss the various issues and problems in the implementation process.|
