Related Product(s): Teaching Note
In 2000, the Hong Kong Government introduced the Language Benchmark Assessment for all teachers in Hong Kong. As part of its education reform, the government required all teachers' English language proficiency to be tested to prove that they were skilled enough to teach. The pressure to upgrade English language curriculum was severely criticised by the 75,000-strong Professional Teachers Union (PTU). This case looks at why the government introduced the test, the critical issues in administering the test, how the government managed initial results, and whether or not the test was being used for selection and/or recruitment purposes.
