Abstract

The Education Commission Report No. 7 recommended that Hong Kong schools should adopt a two-pronged approach, which includes an internal quality assurance mechanism and an external quality assurance mechanism, to assure the quality of school education. This article attempts to review the development of such an approach since 1997 and to compare the effectiveness of the two mechanisms as well as their strengths and weaknesses. The author then introduces the concept of school self-evaluation and its basic steps of implementation. There are also delineations of the school improvement projects organized by the School Development and Evaluation Team of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, including their aims, strategies and deliverables. In the final session, the author reviews the recent development of the School Development and Accountability Framework in Hong Kong, in which three areas of interest are reviewed and suggestions for further development are made.
