IB Grades

How are students assessed?

The MYP offers a criterion-referenced model of assessment. This means that students' results are determined by performance against set standards, not by each student's position in the overall rank order. Teachers allow students to demonstrate achievement according to the required objectives within each subject group.

Students receive an IB report card from the school at the end of each school year. Grades in each subject are marked on seven (7) and are generated using specific IB criteria for evaluation.
