Beyond reading
Tools for school-based assessment

School-based assessment will form 15% of the total grade in the proposed 2007 HKCEE. After 2008, the new 3 + 3 curriculum and the proposed Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education will also follow this pattern.

Students will need to read relatively unaided and be able to comment and reflect on the experience of reading in preparation for oral assessment. Your junior secondary students will be the first to face this challenge.

More than any other readers series, Oxford Progressive English Readers will prepare your students for this experience by presenting highly readable texts that preserve the flavour of the originals and encourage students to express their opinions.
