What do numeric grades mean in the MYP? 

Formative assessments... 

  • Occur throughout the unit of learning
  • Include smaller assignments such as homework, classwork, exit tickets, class discussion, worksheets, journal entries, small group work, etc. 
  • Provide both students and teachers information about student comprehension and whether the student is ready to continue on to the next level of learning. 
  • Are all marked on the following 3-point scale

Summative assessments... 

  • Usually occur at the end of a unit or after a big chunk of learning
  • Include assignments such as projects, tests, presentations, essays, etc. 
  • Are marked on an 8 point scale based on the subject area rubrics provided by IB (see below for links to each subject areas' four rubrics)
  • Measure the depth of understanding that a student shows, beyond simply "meeting expectations." This is typically reflected in the marks that are higher than a 3 (see chart below for general grade descriptors for marks of 1-7.)
  • Click here to read subject specific grade descriptors for marks of 1 through 7.

In every MYP subject area, a student's summative assessments are marked according to 4 subject-specific criteria.
