We have shared this podcast to assist you in getting a better understanding of how the MYP Program assesses your child’s learning.
In this episode, Kurt Carlson (MNIB President and IBEN trainer) takes us through the framework of assessment used in the Middle Years Programme to guide teaching and learning. He draws from his experience as a Science and a Design teacher to provide examples and to help us understand the MYP assessment strategies.
If you are a parent or a teacher, this podcast will help you answer the question – How is teaching and learning going to be different in an MYP setting? Using criterion-related assessments tied to benchmarks is far better than simply assigning points and percentages with no correlation to objectives or learning targets. Students, teachers, and parents all know better each students strengths and areas for improvement when assessed in this way.
