Years 8 and 9 – MYP Assessment Handbook

Greetings Year 8 and 9 MYP Parents,

Although it was back in September, it seems like it was just yesterday that we met for the Year 8 and Year 9 parent MYP information evening. The boys have been receiving feedback throughout the past few months via their formative and summative assessments. Assessment is integral to all teaching and learning, and forms the foundation of our academic program. At the heart of our summative assessment practices are MYP subject-specific assessment criteria, where each subject has four discrete criteria to be assessed.

Year 8 MYP Assessment Handbook
Year 9 MYP Assessment Handbook

In this handbook, you will find a summary of the assessment criteria in each subject, the descriptors for each criterion in each subject, a conversion scale to translate the four individual grades in each subject into one holistic score, and a summary of the approaches to learning skills.

As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
