How Do We Assess Students in
The Middle Years Programme?
• Each set of MYP Criteria contains a series of objectives.
SAMPLE MYP CRITERION WITH OBJECTIVES FROM SCIENCE:
Criterion A: Knowing and understanding
At the end of year 1 (grade 6), students should be able to:
i. outline scientific knowledge
ii. apply scientific knowledge and understanding to solve problems set in familiar
situations and suggest solutions to problems set in unfamiliar situations
iii. interpret information to make scientifically supported judgments.
Criterion A: Knowing and understanding
At the end of year 3 (grade 8), students should be able to:
i. describe scientific knowledge
ii. apply scientific knowledge and understanding to solve problems set in familiar and
unfamiliar situations
iii. analyse information to make scientifically supported judgments.
Communicating MYP
Assessment Tasks/Scores
Subject specific
MYP rubrics are
used to describe
the students’ level
of understanding
on the task.
Communicating MYP
Assessment Tasks/Scores
Process the data:
Each criterion should be assessed twice per semester in
each subject area. The most appropriate score for each
criterion is the final score recorded on the progress report*
*Each subject area has 4
criteria worth 8 points each.
32 is the criterion level total.
A final score will be given
separately for each
semester.
Communicating MYP
Assessment Tasks/Scores
Scores for all criteria are then added to
determine an IB grade for each subject.
