    As recommended by the Education Commission in its Report on Reform Proposals for the Education System in Hong Kong published in 2000, a short-term SSPA mechanism has been introduced as from the 2000/01 school year. The major features of the short-term mechanism include abolition of the Academic Aptitude Test (AAT), using the average of each primary school’s AAT results in the past three years to scale students’ school internal assessment results for the purpose of determining their allocation bands, reduction of the allocation bands from 5 to 3 and increase of the percentage of Secondary One discretionary places from 10 to 20. the short-term SSPA mechanism was intended to enable the various stakeholders in the education sector such as school heads, teachers, students, parents to adapt to the changes and to enable to Government to learn from the experiences gained from the early stage of implementation of the short-term SSPA mechanism to review and refine the SSPA System. In order to assess the perception of the stakeholders on the short-term mechanism, the Government has appointed the Chinese University of Hong Kong to conduct a “Perception Survey on Changes in Teaching and Learning as well as Student Performance in Secondary Schools Subsequent to the Reform of the Secondary School Places Allocation System”.
