Message from the Director

      Established in 2003, our Research Centre aims to facilitate the creation of an effective global assessment and monitoring system in Hong Kong and to establish a rich database, which can inform education stakeholders of youths’ readiness to participate in further study, work, and community affairs. The objectives of the Centre are:
1. to include Hong Kong in the network of international student assessment projects;
2. to promote collaboration among international agencies such as OECD, World Bank and UNESCO, CUHK and the Government on assessment policies;
3. to monitor student competencies including academic achievement and beyond from an international perspective;
4. to illuminate quality and equality issues within the context of local schooling;
5. to train evaluators and practitioners in education to monitor school performance; and
6. to empower scholars in assessing student performance and school effectiveness in Hong Kong, other Chinese societies, and Asia-Pacific regions.
      This is a new page of the HKCISA, I wish you all continue support our professional and meaningful works.

Director, Hong Kong Centre for International Student Assessment (HKCISA)
