    Monitoring the quality of education by tracking students' achievement is a major issue in the current education reform. Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an international assessment of the skills and knowledge of 15-year-olds conducted by The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in thirty-two countries. It aims to assess how far students approaching the end of compulsory education have acquired the knowledge and skills that are essential for full participation in study, work, and society. Implementing PISA in Hong Kong allows creation of a new monitoring system from an international perspective. The proposed project will parallel the first cycle of the PISA study. This international study can extend our knowledge on the effectiveness of Hong Kong basic education by establishing a timely, longitudinal, and multilevel database.
    The objectives of the project are:
    (1) include Hong Kong in the network of international student assessment projects;
    (2) promote collaboration among governments on assessment policy;
    (3) monitor students' achievement in reading, mathematics and science;
    (4) investigate the effectiveness of basic schooling;
    (5) provide a baseline profile of the knowledge and skills of Hong Kong students at the end of compulsory education;
    (6) report results of education system's quality; and
    (7) train education evaluators and practitioners in monitoring school performance. (ED20023)
