Making use of past HKDSE papers, the HKDSE Diagnostic Feedback System (DFS) aims to provide users with feedback that can facilitate learning and instruction. Specifically, students who take a set of questions online can receive instant reports that pinpoint specific areas of concern in their study. Meanwhile, teachers receive detailed item analysis reports as well as reports on their students’ performance so that they can make necessary adjustments to their teaching plan. The presentation demonstrates how the system works, and briefly explains the quantitative and qualitative work involved in developing the system. Future development plans are also touched upon.
