MYP Assessment: Overview

Assessment Overview

Assessment is integral to all teaching and learning. MYP assessment requires teachers to assess the prescribed subject-group objectives using the assessment criteria for each subject group in each year of the programme.

In order to provide students with opportunities to achieve at the highest level, MYP teachers develop rigorous tasks that embrace a variety of assessment strategies. Source: MYP From Principles to Practice (IBO, 2014)

"Acceptable Evidence of Understanding"

Using the backwards planning process in our units, to identify acceptable evidence of understanding against our objectives, we can design assessment tasks that are valid, fair, reliable and authentic. 

  • Not all assessment engagements need to be huge tasks
  • Think: how can we collect evidence that supports student learning?
