Towards A Paradigm Shift for A New Model of Alternative Assessment
To initiate discussion on a paradigm shift to a new assessment model, The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) and Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) are conceiving a project to try out some innovative assessment approaches in the coming academic year.
We hope that this project will be an active response to a learning environment where assessment is not only confined by subject domain knowledge but also its application. In such an environment, students often engage in inquiries into, and problem solving of, discipline-related scenarios. In the process, they put their subject domain knowledge to test, and develop generic competencies.
