Annotation 1: Score projection for the first examination can be withheld until the second examination is completed. Score projection for the second examination can be based on the score in the first examination as a reference.
(Example 1)
Q: Student A of class 3C missed the English examination in the first term because he went to play in the Tuen Mun Park. How should his score be projected?
A: Student A should be given a score of zero for the examination due to truancy.
(Example 2)
Q: Student B of class 2D was absent from the Mathematics examination in the second term due to sickness. The sick leave was approved as per standard procedures. How should his score be projected?
A: It can be calculated based on the procedures below:
Assuming that student B had a score of 75 and a form rank of 15 in the first-term Mathematics examination;
Projection principles: The score of another student with a form rank of 15 in the second-term Mathematics examination (for example: 70) à Therefore, student B's initial projected score for Mathematics in the first term is 70.
However, taking reference from student B's overall academic performance (including performance in regular assignments, tests and classes) in the second term and the entire school year, the subject teacher judges that student B showed an improved academic performance in the second term. The subject teacher therefore adjusts the initial score upwards by 5%. Student C's final projected score for the Mathematics examination in the second term is therefore 70 + 3.5 = 73.5
(Example 3)
Q: Student C of class 4B was absent from the examinations for Geography and 2 other subjects/papers in the first term due to sickness. The sick leave was approved as per standard procedures. How should his Geography score be calculated?
A: It can be calculated based on the procedures below:
- Student C was absent in examinations of more than 1 subject or paper in the first term. The word ‘ABS’ will be printed next to all examination subjects or papers from which the student was absent in the first-term examination report.
- The subject teacher(s) will calculate projected scores for all missed examination subjects or papers in the first term when student C has completed corresponding examinations in the second term.
Assuming that student C scored 70 and had a form rank of 8 in the second-term Geography examination;
Projection principles: The score of another student with a form rank of 8 in the first-term Geography examination (for example: 80) à Therefore, student C's initial project score for Geography in the first term is 80.
Taking reference from student C's overall academic performance (including performance in regular assignments, tests and classes) in the entire school year, the subject teacher judges that student C showed the same academic performance in the first and second terms. Therefore, student C's final projected score remains at 80. |
