Sammy Fung was knowledgeable and the tutor Benson was quite helpful and funny. Also, the course include a non-compulsory site visit. The professor's voice is hard to hear. Heavy workload make comics and newsletter but bad grade. Hea tutor. Only take this class if you are genuinely interested in linguistics and English.
Be prepared to study lots of different terms. Lecture notes are always uploaded after lecture, so you'll need to come in and discuss. Professor is eager to ask for responses from students so come prepared and do your readings. Good luck and don't fail like I did. As an engineering student with gpa about 4 but without stat base, feel hard to learn, because they don't teach you detail, they just teach you the result and you won't understand. The quiz, report and presentation need you to use all the content they teach you.
But actually the course is quite hea except the last weeks.
The professor never read email, so don't send him an email. For me, the grade at the end turns out to be better than I expected. The content itself is already boring, so whatever. Some topics are eye-catching like transgender, sex workers in Hong Kong.
Dr Lin Song is a very good tutor and his tutorials are not boring. Interactive and fun tutorials, easy course content, not difficult to achieve a decent grade. Not a light workload but hard work pays off for this course. Nice tutor. You must really work hard to get a good grade in this course. Some of the topics I don't think is related to Buddhism.
You should go to the lectures in the first half lectures of the course because the lectures near the end of the semester are not interesting and not really related to Buddhism. Do speak in the tutorial and not bother to watch all the movies. You should really give your essays to the tutor to give you an opinion first before you hand in if you want an A. Quiz MC part is basically secondary physics thing, make sure you memorize the powerpoint as there are long questions and the average of quiz is quite high.
Reg with friends, 12 persons per grp so there may be many freeriders; not as leng grade as before. Worst course and lecturer ever absolutely had no idea what was going on. This course is definitely too hard for year 1 students with no related background or knowledge. Remember if you haven't studied bio AND chem before, don't reg this course! I have studied bio in secondary school! Forget Password?

Assessment is defined as the process of forming a judgment about the quality and extent of student achievement or performance. All types of assessment activities which allow for such a judgment are covered by this definition. This Policy 1 sets out the philosophy, principles and regulations that guide and regulate assessment practices for undergraduate and taught postgraduate curricula at the University. Philosophy of Assessment 1.
The University Assessment Policy is underpinned by the notion that assessment should reflect what and how students have learnt, and should enhance, facilitate, and support their learning experiences.
Students should be made aware of the expectations with respect to the standards of their performance in assessments, that they should behave with full academic integrity in all assessments and that they should receive timely feedback, in general or in the specific, on all assessments. The University expects that its teachers will at all times conduct assessments with fairness and academic integrity. Principles of Assessment 2. Apart from assessment of learning, assessment should support learning, i.
Care needs to be taken to ensure that assessment will motivate students to learn and promote a deep approach to learning.
In the design of curricula and courses, assessment needs to be envisaged as an integral part of the student learning experience. Rather than being seen as undesirable, this should be taken as an opportunity to drive and shape student learning.
It provides an opportunity to focus learning on achieving desirable aims.Welcome to HKU (English)
Faculties have formulated learning outcomes for the curricula that they are offering. For the outcomes to be achieved, assessment needs to explicitly relate to learning outcomes and provide a test of, or evidence for, their achievement. Decisions regarding assessment including criteria and standards need to be made collaboratively amongst teaching staff at the time of drafting programme and course learning outcomes and not at the end of a teaching cycle.
They include the forms of assessment to be used, the expectations with respect to student achievement and how these are to be communicated to students at the outset, the determination of results of assessments, the feedback to students etc.
Diverse forms of assessment are required to capture student achievement in a diversity of learning endeavours. In addition, assessment instruments which are highly reliable are often restricted to the testing of fairly narrow learning outcomes, such as knowledge per se rather than use, application and synthesis of knowledge.
