Assessment fees and services


Middle Years Programme

The IB is introducing a new MYP assessment model in 2016 that includes mandatory moderation of the personal project and optional external assessment (eAssessment). In 2015 Moderation is the only route to the IB MYP Certificate and IB MYP Record of Achievement. For those schools wishing to gain experience of the eAssessments to be introduced in 2016 a limited session of the MYP eAssessment will be run for selected subjects in the second quarter of 2015.

Until 2016, IB World Schools may opt to have their internal assessment moderated by the IB.

There are different assessment fees until 2016

  1. The school subject fee is charged once for each subject that is moderated for a school.
  2. The student fee is charged for each student registered by the school for moderation in one or more subjects.

eAssessment

  • Candidate registration fee is paid once for each student to take one or more examinations in a particular examination session.
  • Individual subject registration fee is paid for each subject taken by an individual student.
