Enhanced Preset Assessment Tasks

Since February 2020 at when the COVID-19 pandemic has started, the Preset Assessment Tasks of Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics for Key Stages 1 – 3 have been uploaded onto the STAR platform regularly. To broaden the diversity of learning and assessment resources, while the Preset Assessment Tasks of Chinese Language and English Language will further cover writing, listening and speaking aspects, updated online interactive games covering Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics will also be uploaded to the WLTS platform on a regular basis from September 2020 and onwards. Teachers can directly use the Preset Assessment Items / Tasks when planning school-based curriculum, or modify them on need basis and assign them to students via the STAR platform, or encourage students to undergo learning in school or/and at home.
