How to understand the Criterion Related Grading
The MYP assessment system at CMS is called a criterion-related model and it is important that both students and parents/guardians understand how this assessment works as it is a change from previous practices of grading in a traditional environment.
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. They encompass the factual, conceptual, procedural and metacognitive dimensions of knowledge.
