We are pleased so many of you are taking the time to read, and see the learning that is happening in your child’s MYP classes. If you haven’t had the opportunity to yet do this, we would appreciate it if you can do so in the next fortnight. You will note teacher comments, and level of achievement awarded. There will be evidence of work to help you share in the learning of each class, which should spark further conversations in your home based on their unit. As parents, it will also give you a chance to learn about the units before the upcoming Three-Way Conferences.
Teachers have provided your child with specific feedback, in a variety of formats. You will note the new change where specific next steps are provided for each assessment task.
The following documents are available on our website here.
- The Secondary Assessment Policy outlines our philosophy towards assessment of individual tasks and our approach to reporting on student achievement to parents.
- The DC Secondary ARR Structure 2021-22 outlines the structure of reports throughout the year and the relevant deadlines.
- The MYP Assessment Procedures outline how overall achievement grades are worked out in each subject of the MYP.
A tutorial on accessing student reports through the Gateway is available on the school website here.
