The ability to evaluate teaching performance, and to contribute to the mentoring and support of beginning teachers, is a major indicator of a teacher’s professional competence. This project built on the successful mentoring and staff development practices employed by the research team. The target group for the project was secondary teachers in the Arts Education, Technology Education, Mathematics, Science and Physical Education KLAs, and the specific focus will be on mentoring, peer review and lesson study within the context of the current education reforms in HK.The 'Secondary Teaching Evaluation and Mentoring (STEM) Project’ was granted $4.6 million by QEF in 2003, the second largest project awarded in the QEF bids in that year. This project obtained a QEF 10th Anniversary "Outstanding Project Award" in 2008, and was one of the 20 projects selected from thousands of projects funded by QEF over the past ten years that received such an honor.
