This project is a three-year project supported by the Quality Education Fund until Feb 2016. The overall goal is to enhance reading interest and strengthen reading comprehension ability of primary school students through an engaging, fun, and interactive e-quiz cloud service called the “Reading Battle”.

Students attempt quizzes online after reading children’s literature borrowed from the school library. They receive scaffolding support online while attempting the quizzes.  To motivate students’ participation, students can compete with their classmates, and compete with students from other participating schools as well. Teachers can monitor students' progress through reports available from the system. A system demo and experience sharing sessions have been arranged in this dissemination. The project is open to more schools to join in the coming September.

學生 利用課餘時間閱讀從學校圖書館借出的書籍後,可登入雲端兒童文學測驗庫進行電子測驗,以發展其閱讀理解能力。他們也可以與同學,甚至其他學校的學生進行比 賽。學生完成讀後測驗後,教師可從網上數據庫理解學生的進度,並能更有效地量度及分析他們的閱讀理解水平。是次發佈會備有系統示範環節及參與學校的經驗分 享,歡迎學校於來年9月參與此計劃。
