Student Assessment

Teachers assess student work with guidance from the IBO according to prescribed, published criteria that state final levels of achievement in each discipline.

The MYP places special emphasis on formative assessment, which is used at different stages of the learning process to measure the progress of the student and make necessary adjustments to teaching plans and methods. The students are also involved in formative self-assessment of their work and they reflect on their own approaches to learning.

The final result: a portfolio of achievement

The student's accomplishments, measured during the school's assessment process, are recorded by the school in a portfolio of achievement. The IBO provides a portfolio for each student who completes the MYP. It includes documents from the IBO as well as papers and certificates from the school that reflect the content and nature of the local program. The portfolio, which has a self-evaluation by the student, may contain academic results, information about community service, the personal project and extracurricular achievements. A student's achievements in subjects that are not part of the MYP may also be recorded.

Schools often opt for an MYP certificate, accompanied by a record of achievement. These are formal documents limited to schools that elect to have their own assessment of their students validated by the IBO.

Program evaluation

Terms appointed by the IBO carry out on-site evaluations that assess the effectiveness of the delivery of the MYP at a school. The evaluation process does not assess individual teachers or students. Evaluators include IBO personnel, teachers who work with the MYP of professionals in education who are familiar with the program.

The evaluation must follow a process of self-study at the school, guided by the regional office of the IBO.
