The Role of the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority

  • Christina Lee


This chapter, written by Christina Lee of the HKEAA outlines the role of the HKEAA in Hong Kong, provides an overview of the history of OSM in Hong Kong, and describes how OSM functions from an operational standpoint. It provides the background to OSM in Hong Kong, the rationale for the introduction of OSM, the implementation of OSM, the history of OSM in Hong Kong, and the processes involved in using OSM. It concludes that the decision to introduce OSM in Hong Kong was a quantum shift in marking procedures and describes how ‘the implications of the Hong Kong full implementation of OSM for other countries are significant’.
