Reforming Science Assessment in Shanxi Province1

This paper describes a project being undertaken in Shanxi province to help teachers with the reformed curriculum in Primary science (as well as in Junior Secondary biology, chemistry, geography, and physics). The project is developing and testing new mid-year and final examinations using the experience of a similar project in the Canadian province of Ontario. We hope that, once teachers see these new forms of assessment, they will understand better the new methods of teaching required for the new curriculum. Before describing the project, however, I will explain the changes in science curricula around the ,world and why assessment reform is an essential aspect of curriculum reform.
