MYP examination authors
The IB middle years programme is going through an exciting transformation with the introduction of a whole new assessment model including onscreen examinations. The IB is looking to recruit examination authors who will help develop innovative onscreen examinations. The examinations utilise web based technologies to provide students with an authentic assessment experience testing their knowledge and skills.
We are currently recruiting paper authors in the following areas:
Language and Literature
- Integrated humanities
Individuals and Societies/Humanities
If you would be interested in becoming an examination author please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org providing an outline of your teaching background including your experience of assessment preparation and use of IT in the classroom and a brief explanation of why you would like to make this contribution to the MYP programme.
The role of the moderator
Moderators are teachers in IB World Schools offering the MYP, ideally with experience of teaching the final year of the programme. Successful applicants must undertake online training before beginning their work.
The training is monitored by experienced senior moderators whose support is available throughout the process. Moderation of samples and writing of reports for the eight schools normally allocated to each moderator must be completed by the end of June. A fee is paid for each sample moderated.
The role of moderator affords an opportunity to gain professional development in the assessment of MYP student work and to exchange ideas via an online forum with teachers from other schools. The experience gained by teachers during the moderation process can be of great benefit to teaching and learning in the school.
Should you or any colleagues wish to apply to become an MYP moderator please review the recruitment policy below prior to completing an application form.
