For students in Years 7 to 9 students are assessed against four MYP criteria for each subject area in addition to the Victorian Curriculum. The criteria for each subject area represent the use of knowledge, understanding and skills that students are taught.
For your reference, the assessment and grading information is contained in tables below.
The following video guides you through the Semester Reports.
MYP Assessment Criteria
The MYP assessment criteria across subject areas is summarised as follows:
|Language and Literature||Analysing||Organising||Producing Text||Using Language|
|Individuals and Societies||Knowing and Understanding||Investigating||Communicating||Thinking Critically|
|Sciences||Knowing and Understanding||Inquiring and Designing||Processing and Evaluating||Reflecting on the Impacts of Science|
|Mathematics||Knowing and Understanding||Investigating Patterns||Communicating||Applying Mathematics in Real-World Contexts|
|Arts||Knowing and Understanding||Developing Skills||Thinking Creatively||Responding|
|Physical and Health Education||Knowing and Understanding||Planning for Performance||Applying and Performing||Reflecting and Improving Performance|
|Design||Inquiring and Analysing||Developing Ideas||Creating the Solution||Evaluating|
Each criterion is divided into achievement levels from 0-8. The table below outlines the achievement levels.
|1-8||Please see the rubric attached to the learning task for specific details regarding these levels|
|LS||‘Low Submission’ – This is the equivalent of a grade of 0|
|NA||Due to student absence, a level cannot be assigned based on their classwork|
This Criterion is yet to be assessed
The final grade on the MYP report indicates what level your child is achieving overall in that subject. The final grade is awarded on a scale from 1-7. Please use the grade
boundaries chart below to see the description of your child’s overall achievement.
|7||Produces high-quality, frequently innovative work. Communicates comprehensive, nuanced understanding of concepts and contexts. Consistently demonstrates sophisticated critical and creative thinking. Frequently transfers knowledge and skills with independence and expertise in a variety of complex classroom and real-world situations.|
|6||Produces high-quality, occasionally innovative work. Communicates extensive understanding of concepts and contexts. Demonstrates critical and creative thinking, frequently with sophistication. Uses knowledge and skills in familiar and unfamiliar classroom and real-world situations, often with independence|
|5||Produces generally high-quality work. Communicates secure understanding of concepts and contexts. Demonstrates critical and creative thinking, sometimes with sophistication. Uses knowledge and skills in familiar classroom and real-world situations and, with support, some unfamiliar real-world situations.|
|4||Produces good-quality work. Communicates basic understanding of most concepts and contexts with few misunderstandings and minor gaps. Often demonstrates basic critical and creative thinking. Uses knowledge and skills with some flexibility in familiar classroom situations but requires support in unfamiliar situations.|
|3||Produces work of an acceptable quality. Communicates basic understanding of many concepts and contexts, with occasionally significant misunderstandings or gaps. Begins to demonstrate some basic critical and creative thinking. Is often inflexible in the use of knowledge and skills, requiring support even in familiar classroom situations.|
|2||Produces work of limited quality. Expresses misunderstandings or significant gaps in understanding for many concepts and contexts. Infrequently demonstrates critical or creative thinking. Generally inflexible in the use of knowledge and skills, infrequently applying knowledge and skills|
|1||Produces work of very limited quality. Conveys many significant misunderstandings or lacks understanding of most concepts and contexts. Very rarely demonstrates critical or creative thinking. Very inflexible, rarely using knowledge or skills.|
|N/A||Not Yet Assessed.|
