The HKU Assessment Resources Centre (http://ar.cetl.hku.hk/), a virtual platform providing assessment resources to support teachers, was launched on March 22, 2011. At the launching ceremony, Pro-Vice-Chancellor Professor Amy Tsui pointed out that assessment is an important but often neglected part of teaching and learning. The profound effect of assessment and teachers’ feedback on student performance is evident. At a time when HKU is moving to adopt standards-referenced assessment, the establishment of the HKU Assessment Resources Centre plays a significant role in bringing together teachers to share resources and experience.
