普通話成為香港中學課程核心科目已十年了。為瞭解初中普通話科的評估情況,我們選取了五所中學,包括用普通話教中文的學校和用粵語教中文的學校,抽樣取了十份初中普通話考卷,從內容、考核形式等角度進行分析,總結評核內容、方式,以及有待改進之處。根據分析結果,並對照現行的初中普通話科課程的內容,嘗試提出評估的改進建議。||The subject “Putonghua” had been included in the Hong Kong secondary school curriculum as a core subject for a decade. In order to understand the assessment of Putonghua in junior high schools, we selected five secondary schools, including schools that use Putonghua to teach the Chinese language and schools that use Cantonese to teach the Chinese language, and sampled 10 copies of Putonghua test papers from these schools. The study analysed the content and approach of the assessment, recognized areas for improvement and made recommendations for the improvement of assessment of Putonghua in junior high schools, in accordance with the Putonghua curriculum.
