推行「校本評核」(school-based assessment/SBA)的理由有以下幾項:

1.          加強說話能力評分的可靠程度(enhance the validity of the speaking assessment)──20分鐘的Oral Exam以外加上S5S6的兩年評核當然較可靠

2.          減輕一試定生死(It eliminates dependence on the results of a one-off examination

3.          推動學生廣泛閱讀/觀賞英語材料,發展整體語文能力(develop the  overall language ability of students

4.          在過程中的餘波效應促進教學互動(to promote a positive impact or “backwash effect” on students, teachers and school staff)。我猜,通過SBA,老師畢竟掌握了學生部分分數。所以,SBA能間接提高學生對老師的尊重(如果是值得尊重的老師!很多老師不好,但有很多老師可敬,終生都懷念/尊敬!)。 

校本評核分兩個部分: 

Part A (10%)

HKDSESchool-based assessment 20%。學生要在三年內閱讀/觀賞(read/view)下列四類作品的六項材料(text),其中每類作品最少要閱讀/觀賞一份材料:

1.          print fiction (小說類)

2.          print non-fiction (非小說類)

3.          non-print fiction (戲劇類)

4.          non-print non-fiction (非戲劇類)

然後,學生要寫出他的意見或讀後感(write comments and personal reflections),並就閱讀材料參加課堂討論(a discussion with classmates)或作個人短講(individual presentation)並回應教老師的問題。老師只會根據學生的說話技巧(oral performance)評分,reading/viewing/writing的部分只是評核的手段,不計分。

老師須在中五和中六呈分三次,在中五和中六每年必須至少呈分一次。(當然,老師必然會在中五呈分一次,在中六呈分兩次。應不會在中五學生尚未成熟時呈分兩次。)

一般而言,說話能力(oral performance)的評核範圍(assessment domains)至少會包括:

1.      Pronunciation and delivery(發音及流暢度)

2.      Communication strategies(溝通技巧)

3.      Vocabulary and language patterns(用詞及語法)

4.      Ideas and organization(意念及組織)

Part B(佔5%

以課程選修部分的單元為基礎,作一次過評核小組討論(group interaction或個人短講(individual presentation)。考核學生反思(reflect on)、運用(make use of)和論述(speak about)從選修單元習得的知識、技能和經驗。

考評局原文如下:

The SBA will consist of two parts. 

Part A (10% of the subject mark)

This part will comprise a reading/viewing programme where students will need to read/view six texts over the course of three years (at least one each from the following four categories: print fiction, print non-fiction, non-print fiction and non-print non-fiction). They have to write comments and personal reflections on them, and then take part in a discussion with classmates on the texts they have read/viewed, or make individual presentations and respond to their teacher’s questions, which will be derived from their written personal comments. The assessment will be based on the student’s oral performance. The  reading/viewing/writing will only serve as the means to this end and will not be assessed. Teachers need to conduct three assessments in S5 and S6, and report three marks, with at least one mark based on a group interaction and one on an individual presentation.

Part B (5% of the subject mark)

This part will consist of a group interaction or an individual presentation based on the modules in the Elective Part of the curriculum. The focus will be on the ability of  students to reflect on, make use of and speak about the knowledge, skills and experience gained in the module(s). The assessment will be based on the student’s oral performance.

小插語

「社會民主連線進行議會抗爭,以遭受的威脅及壓力而論,難與當時的北京學生相比,但是對抗不公義的立場,則是地異心同,因為北京學生及市民所展示的道德勇氣,讓我們可以承先啟後,繼志述事,為公義抗爭到底。」(《毓民政壇搞事錄》第321頁)
