IEP Development in Hong Kong: Past and Future
王 芾 ：香港大学教育学院，香港
By reviewing available school IEP samples, the study aims to investigate the content of IEP documentation. Furthermore, through a quantitative analysis of IEP questionnaire data with teachers and school administrators, the study also aims to evaluate IEP as a process. Finally, via qualitative interviews with parents, teachers and school administrators, the stakeholders’ experience in IEP practice was investigated. 11 school settings were interviewed and 82 questionnaires were collected from in-service teachers. Results indicated that the IEP implementation in Hong Kong can further be improved in four dimensions: alignment, consistency, accountability and efficiency; and six IEP strategic development goals are suggested: 1) The measurability of IEP objectives need to be improved; 2) The educational strategies should be tailor-made to correspond more specifically to the educational goals and objectives; 3) More curriculum-based assessment measures should be used to provide evidence-based reference for educational plan development; 4) Communication channels for parents to share their feedback and expectations need to be made available; 5) The employment of information technological techniques such as the adoption of digitalized data management system and communication platform should be optimized; 6) Last but not least, the establishment of a case- manager system for every student-specific IEP should be reinforced.
