Using data to improve examinations and learning in Hong Kong: the HKEAA experience

HKEAA develops and administers the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) examination, which serves to certify school leavers at the end of six years of secondary school education and is also Hong Kong’s main qualification for post-secondary admission. In response to stakeholder requests for greater transparency about its operations, and to better support teaching and learning, HKEAA has been expanding the range of the post-examination information it provides to candidates, schools and teachers. Examination data are also used within the HKEAA for grading purposes and to review the reliability of examination papers, and by the Hong Kong Government to investigate the influence of socioeconomic factors on student performance, but these uses are beyond the scope of this paper.
