Assessment & Feedback

Assessment of learning is carried out using a variety of strategies. Throughout a unit of work, students can expect to:

  • Complete traditional pen and paper tests
  • Give presentations (in groups or individually)
  • Submit essays (written in class or at home)
  • Complete research projects
  • Participate in dramatic, speech and musical performances
  • Contribute to online forums
  • Create visual displays
  • Participate in artistic exhibitions
  • Record podcasts
  • Create short films.

All overall subject grades are marked using the IB’s 1-7 scale, where 7 is the highest and 1 the lowest. The Personal Project is also marked using the 1-7 scale.
