HK Scholars exists to increase the number of underprivileged young people progressing to university. This is the long-term outcome we work towards.
In order to demonstrate our shorter-term impact on pupils, we designed the following competency framework in consultation with AccessEd and local educators. This framework supports our pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and ambitions needed to be university-ready.
We assessed these competencies using the final assignment and a standardised self-report questionnaire from the academic literature called “The Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire”, which is widely used. It is a highly reliable and valid assessment.
