ISPS Philosophy of Assessment

Assessment is a key part of teaching and learning that forms the basis from which teachers and students make decisions about academic and personal development.  It gives direction for setting instructional goals and also provides information about the overall growth of students.

Principles of Assessment – From MYP Principles into Practice (2014)


ISPS follows the assessment philosophy articulated in the IB MYP Principles of Assessment. A portion of this guide is provided here for reference.

Assessment is integral to all teaching and learning. MYP assessment requires teachers to assess the prescribed subject-group objectives using the assessment criteria for each subject group in each year of the program. In order to provide students with opportunities to achieve at the highest level, MYP teachers develop rigorous tasks that embrace a variety of assessment strategies.
