AbstractThis paper provides a brief overview of current educational evaluation measures and related issues in Hong Kong. The foci of measures for discussion are quality assurance mechanisms especially school self-evaluation (SSE) and external school review (ESR), and Territory-wide System Assessment (TSA). Three questions are posed for discussion: (a) How can we promote coherence among educational reform (highlighting students' whole-person development) and educational supervision and evaluation policies (stressing academic performances) in both rhetoric and practice (b) How can we promote a systematic linkage between centralized systems (ESR, SSE, BCA/TSA) and localized systems (teacher evaluation) so as to drive school improvement/effectiveness and teacher development/effectiveness (c) How can we help relieve teachers' workload and anxieties linked with educational evaluation and foster a shared community of educational evaluation among government agencies, SSB/SMC/IMC and teachers. © 2009 by Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
