The results showed that the attainment rate of the three major subjects of Primary 20, Primary 2006 and Secondary <> students has declined, with the largest decline in the attainment rate of Primary <> students, which is the lowest since <>.
Daniel Zhang, honorary chairman of the Primary School Principals' Association, said today (21st) that he agreed that teachers will try their best to "catch up" after the resumption of classes, and this also puts a lot of pressure on teachers and students.
Hou Kit-tai, a professor at the Centre for Educational Data Research at CUHK, believes that the decline is not as big as imagined, and the public should not over-interpret it, but stresses that the importance of annual assessment such as physical examination is important, and the most important thing is that teachers and parents should understand the situation of students, and adjust the learning plan if students do not adapt.
Due to the repeated suspension of the TSA for three years due to the new crown epidemic, the HKEAA yesterday announced the performance of Primary 3, Primary 3 and Secondary <> students in the three subjects of Chinese, English and Mathematics. Daniel Zhang, Honorary Chairman of the Primary School Principals' Association, said on the RTHK program "Millennium" that because of the large differences in learning results during the epidemic, the school community is mentally prepared for this result, believing that the decline this time is not amazing.
He explained that during the epidemic, students did not have face-to-face classes, and they were very dependent on family support in disguise, but unfortunately the learning environment at home was generally poor, the home environment was narrow, and some of them even had three siblings taking online classes in the same house at the same time, so it was inevitable that students' grades would decline.

He also pointed out that he understands that after the resumption of full-time classes, different principals have implemented their own methods in the hope of helping children recover their progress, and this has also put a lot of pressure on teachers and students, so he hopes that the school sector will deal with students' mental health first and then chase academic performance. He also hopes that both the school sector, parents and members of the community will understand that different industries have discovered this backwardness, and "allow students to adapt and catch up slowly."
Hou Kit-tai, a professor at the Centre for Educational Data Research at CUHK, also said in the same program that compared with other places in foreign countries, Hong Kong's decline is not very large, and used the analogy of athletes to point out that if athletes do not have the Olympics or the sports games, they will have less practice, and during the epidemic, teachers "teaching and teaching may not necessarily mention you (revision)", so the performance of Primary 6 students has also declined. As for Primary 3 students, most of them will have their parents to help them study, while Secondary 3 students are relatively self-disciplined.

As for whether the current decline will put pressure on schools and students, he believes that the current decline is not as big as imagined, and the public should not over-interpret it, and it is difficult to say whether the pressure is good or not, but the medical examination is important." He explained that the assessment is such as annual physical examination, and Hong Kong has used the lowest risk to publish the relevant results, as it will only inform the school and not publish it online. He believes that the school sector is not catching up with the backward but returning to normal, and it is expected that it will not be difficult to recover the progress, and the most important thing is that teachers and parents should understand the situation of students, and adjust the learning plan if students are unable to adapt.
