Developed by the EDB, the STAR platform provides quality online assessment materials covering Chinese Language, English Language and Mathematics from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 3. Teachers can make use of the STAR platform, which hosts more than 57 000 assessment items, to create assessment tasks for individual students or classes, instantly obtain the performance of participating students, as well as providing students with timely and quality feedback to enhance learning and plan for follow-up action by making reference to the EDB Web-based Learning and Teaching Support (WLTS) platform. The assessment items are set according to the Basic Competencies (BC) of each Key Stage of learning, and the platform supports tablets, notebooks and desktop computers.
Special Arrangement for ‘Learning at Home’
To facilitate teachers’ use of the STAR platform to enhance students’ learning during the class suspension period due to the epidemic, the ‘Preset Assessment Papers’ of the three respective subjects for each Key Stage will be uploaded to the platform every week for teachers' reference and use. Teachers can directly use these ‘Preset Assessment Papers’ or modify them on need basis, and assign them to students as online homework. For details, please refer to the video guide of Use the 'Preset Papers'.
