The HKEAA 40th Anniversary Luncheon Forum held on 8 August was a huge success. More than 160 guests from the education community, including senior government officials as well as heads of public organisations attended the forum to discuss and review the development and impact of public examinations and educational assessment in Hong Kong.
Our guest of honour, Mr Kevin Yeung Yun-hung, Secretary for Education officiated the opening ceremony and delivered a speech at the luncheon. He acknowledged the concerted efforts of the Authority in providing fair and reliable examinations in Hong Kong in the last four decades. He also appreciated the collaboration by the Education Bureau and the Authority in promoting the HKDSE over the past few years, resulting in the HKDSE qualification being widely accepted locally and overseas.
Professor Edward Chen Kwan-yiu, the keynote speaker, then gave a talk on ‘Assessment and Examinations: A Liberal Arts Perspective’ and joined a panel discussion with Professor Lui Tai-lok, Chair Professor of Hong Kong Studies of the Education University of Hong Kong, Dr Halina Poon Suk-han, Chairman of Hong Kong Subsidized Secondary School Council, and Dr Tong Chong-sze, Secretary General of the HKEAA.
