Project Details


The implementation of the 3-year senior secondary academic structure commenced at Secondary 4 in September 2009. The first 3-year curriculum and assessment cycle was completed in 2012 with the first cohort of students taking the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Examination. The medium-term review of the New Academic Structure has begun. Timely data collection on curriculum implementation in schools is essential for further review of the curriculum and assessment of Senior Secondary subjects. A study on the impact of the Senior Secondary curriculum on students’ attainment of multiple perspectives, mastery of critical thinking and appreciation of values as observed from the 2012 and 2013 HKDSE Examination to inform the implementation and further review of the Senior Secondary curriculum and assessment is required.
