香港中一入學前香港學科測驗的操練︰囚徒困局的詮釋

Research output: Contribution to journalArticles

Abstract

香港中學派位制度以「中一入學前香港學科測驗」成績為基礎。該學科測驗設計理念清晰,希望降低學校對操練學生的控制、減少學生操練的誘因;然而,學生仍陷入操練困局。本文引用囚徒困局詮釋香港學校操練學科測驗的現象。首先,本文簡述囚徒困局的概念;接着,分析內地及香港學校與學生陷入考試操練困局的情況;第三,應用囚徒困局詮釋香港學科測驗的現象;最後,探討打破考試操練困局的方法。筆者認為,打破困局的方法不外兩方面:一為提高個人的理性水平;二為改變制度內的收益。
The Hong Kong secondary place allocation is based on the results of Pre-Secondary One Attainment Test. The concept for designing this test in this phenomenon is clear and reasonable, aiming to reduce the possibility of school control and drilling students. Students, however, still fall into the dilemma of drilling. The article, applying the concept of prisoner’s dilemma, interprets the phenomena of drilling for examination results by schools in Hong Kong. First, this article introduces the concept of prisoner’s dilemma. Then, it analyses the phenomena of the dilemma of drilling for examination results among students and schools in mainland China and Hong Kong. Third, applying prisoner’s dilemma to interpret the Pre-S1 phenomenon in Hong Kong. Finally, ways are suggested to solve the dilemma. The author stresses that there are two main approaches to solve the dilemma: one is to raise the rational standard of individuals and another is to change the payoffs in the reward system.
