On 11 August 2018 over 420 parents and members of the public attended our public examinations information seminar themed Myths and Facts of Examinations
. Hosted by Dr So Kwok-sang, Secretary General, and Mrs Christina Lee, Director of Public Examinations of the HKEAA, the seminar aimed to invite our stakeholders, in particular parents, to learn more about the examination services offered by the Authority, including the HKDSE and a suite of international examinations catering for the diversified education needs of the young generation of Hong Kong.
‘The views and opinions of parents, one of the key stakeholders of our examination and assessment services and the education system in Hong Kong, are important for the betterment of the services the Authority provides,’ said Dr So, ‘In recent years, we don't just focus on engaging our stakeholders but will also proactively strengthen our assessment literacy training programmes for them.’
To reach out to more stakeholders across different areas in Hong Kong, the Authority will be holding another parents seminar in the New Territories on 15 September 2018. Programme details are available online
