IB Assessment

Assessment at the IB Academy is used to support student learning. This means that teachers gather and analyze data on a student’s performance using an IB rubric and then provide him/her feedback to help improve his/her performance. MYP assessment is is made using a IB rubric with the MYP criterion and a task-specific clarification. 


The MYP assessment system at the IB Academy is called a criterion-related assessment and it is important that both students and parents/guardians understand how this assessment works as it is a change from previous grading in a traditional school. Assessing students using a rubric is very helpful because the student knows before starting the work what needs to be done to reach the highest levels of achievement. It also helps teachers clarify and express their expectations about assignments in a way that students are able to understand. Students receive feedback based on the criteria outlined in the MYP rubric and the task specific clarification. 

           What Are The Assessment Criteria?

Schools must regularly report student progress towards the MYP objectives using the prescribed subject-group assessment criteria. The criteria for each subject group represent the uses of knowledge, understanding and skills that must be taught.  The MYP assessment criteria across subject groups can be summarized as follows.

Academy Honesty
The IB Academy has developed and implements an academic honesty policy that is consistent with IB expectations.
EMES Academic Honesty Policy 18-19.pdf

The IB Academy uses the policy of academic honesty to promote principled communication in developing personal integrity in teaching, learning and assessment.  The assessment policy outlines the teacher's responsibility to teach academic honesty and allow the student to demonstrate his/her own knowledge and the skills acquired during their time at the IB Academy. Students are required to adhere to the policy and demonstrate their own learning.
