The third of the Assessment Workshop Series will be held on Apr 11, 2011 from 12:30 to 2:00 pm at room 322, Run Run Shaw Building. Professor Margaret Price from Oxford Brookes Business School in the UK will be facilitating this workshop. The workshop will look at some of the difficulties and solutions involved in working with standards based assessment and help participants to develop skills to increase their effectiveness. Assessment is a complex and integrated process and the workshop activities will support participants in understanding what must be addressed and how to do it. It will look at some pitfalls and ways to improve apparently easy tasks such as writing criteria and level descriptors and look beyond those to how standards can really be shared.

Each UGC-funded institution has been invited to nominate two outstanding teachers for the inaugural Awards. A maximum of three awards are expected to be made. The awardees are expected to become “ambassadors of good teaching” to collectively make a real and sustained impact in promoting teaching excellence in the UGC sector.

The Institutional Survey Reports System will be launched on January 17, 2011 to serve as the online platform for Faculties to retrieve institutional survey results from the HKU Student Learning Experience Questionnaire (HKUSLEQ). This System will enable Faculties to retrieve survey results and generate reports at curriculum and programme levels. Standard report templates are also available for downloading scores for the scales and the individual items.

The System will be launched in two phases:

  • Phase 1 – January 17, 2011 – will enable access to the data of more recent surveys;
  • Phase 2 – February 28, 2011 – will enable access to the data of more distant surveys.

The System can be accessed by academic staff and those administrative staff who have been granted access rights. Please follow the path below.

HKU Portal -> MyUIS -> Teaching & Learning -> Institutional Survey Reports

Faculties are also welcome to contact Dr. Maggie Zhao of CETL at myzhao@hku.hk for support in interpreting and utilizing survey data, and Mr. David Tsang at davidtsang@cetl.hku.hk for technical support in using the System.
