Setting standards for Hong Kong primary students' spoken Chinese language assessment

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In Hong Kong primary schools, the mode of Chinese language assessment is usually limited to an assessment of what is produced using pen and paper. Students’ competency in spoken language is seldom addressed. The Methods of Assessment for the Target Oriented Curriculum for Chinese Language ([Forms] P1-6) (1998) identifies the learning targets and objectives for the subject, Chinese Language, for Key Stage 1 and 2, but the document does not describe the language skills of Speaking and Listening very explicitly. This presentation will use the curricula of different countries/states/cities (for example, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and Australia) as a data resource, and the main spoken Chinese language of Hong Kong Primary students.
