We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support with your child’s learning this year. Each module, students are assessed on subject specific criteria and these are used to form an overall MYP grade for your son/daughter. This week, the interim report for your child was published via MyChildAtSchool (MCAS). The table below gives an overview of the assessment criteria:
Produces high-quality, frequently innovative work. Communicates
comprehensive, nuanced understanding of concepts and contexts. Consistently demonstrates sophisticated critical and creative thinking. Frequently transfers knowledge and skills with independence and expertise in a variety of complex classroom and real-world situations.
Produces high-quality, occasionally innovative work. Communicates extensive understanding of concepts and contexts. Demonstrates critical and creative thinking, frequently with sophistication. Uses knowledge and skills in familiar and unfamiliar classroom and real-world situations, often with independence.
Produces generally high-quality work. Communicates secure understanding of concepts and contexts. Demonstrates critical and creative thinking, sometimes with sophistication. Uses knowledge and skills in familiar classroom and real-world situations, and, with support, some unfamiliar real-world situations.
Produces good quality work. Communicates basic understanding of most concepts and contexts with few misunderstandings and minor gaps. Often demonstrates basic critical and creative thinking. Uses knowledge and skills with some flexibility in familiar classroom situations, but requires support in unfamiliar situations.
Produces work of an acceptable quality. Communicates basic understanding of many concepts and contexts, with occasionally significant misunderstandings or gaps. Begins to demonstrate some basic critical and creative thinking. Is often inflexible in the use of knowledge and skills, requiring support even in familiar classroom situations.
Produces work of limited quality. Expresses misunderstandings or significant gaps in understanding for many concepts and contexts. Infrequently demonstrates critical or creative thinking. Generally inflexible in the use of knowledge and skills, infrequently applying knowledge and skills.
Produces work of very limited quality. Conveys many significant misunderstandings or lacks understanding of most concepts and skills. Very rarely demonstrates critical or creative thinking. Very inflexible, rarely using knowledge or skills.
All students studying the MYP will sit ‘end of year’ assessments in Modules 5 and 6 in every subject. To support the sequencing of learning and the subject specific nature of these assessments, they will take place at different times through each module. Staff will provide at least one week’s notice for all students and parents/carers via Google Classroom, to aid any preparation including revision that students should complete.
It is important that students use these assessments to highlight exactly what they know and the skills they have developed. It is our ambition that all students aim to achieve at least an MYP grade 4 in each subject.
In Module 6, you will receive a comprehensive end of year report. This report will cover the attainment of your son/daughter in all four MYP criteria, as well as a Final MYP Grade for each subject.
