Abstract

Science is no longer taught as a separate primary subject in Hong Kong after the implementation of General Studies (GS), which integrated three disciplines, viz., Primary Science, Social Studies and Health Education. Science achievements of 333 fourth-grade pupils were compared with results of past Hong Kong pupils participating in the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). The findings revealed that the GS Curriculum did not produce better or worse overall results of pupils’ science knowledge than the previous Primary Science Curriculum in Hong Kong.
