The IB is introducing a new MYP assessment model in 2016 that includes mandatory moderation of the personal project.
Teachers organise continuous assessment over the course of the programme according to specified assessment criteria that correspond to the objectives of each subject group. Regular assessment and reporting play a major role:
- in the students’ and parents’ understanding of the objectives and assessment criteria
- in the students’ preparation for final assessment
- in the development of the curriculum according to the principles of the programme.
Teachers are responsible for structuring varied and valid assessment tasks (including tests and examinations) that will allow students to demonstrate achievement according to the objectives for each subject group. These include:
- open-ended, problem-solving activities
- organised debates
- hands-on experimentation
- analysis and reflection
