|摘要(英文)：||This paper discusses the launch of school-based teaching performance assessment system under the new System Framework for Private School Teaching Staff of Non-tertiary Education (the Framework) in Macao on both private schools and teachers. Based on the theoretical threshold assessment framework, I analyze the potential advantages such as establishing standardized pay and rank system, and disadvantages such as unfavorable condition for teachers at the highest rank and the lowest rank. I study the new school-based teaching performance assessment system of MASS as a case study. It is designed according to the Guidelines for Establishing and Implementing a School-based Teaching Staff Performance Assessment System for Private Schools of Non-tertiary Education provided by the Education and Youth Affairs Bureau. I discuss its potential strengths, including a) has clear rubrics, b) includes triangulation approach, c) fits the purpose and d) rewards good performers; and limitations, including a) is too comprehensive, b) has central tendency error, c) is unsuitable for some subjects, d) lacks expert assessors, e) is not formative enough, f) limits chance of promotion in advance and g) has wash back effects. The findings indicate that the new school-based teaching performance assessment system has both good and bad effects, amendments should be carried out, and both school management teams and teachers need time and training to adapt to the new system.|
