Middle Years Programme eAssessment shortlisted for second award
The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) eAssessment has been shortlisted in the Assessment category of the Teach Secondary Awards. This is the second award shortlisting for the MYP eAssessment in 2019.
The Teach Secondary Awards are designed to highlight and celebrate the very best resources available for secondary schools, with winners selected by a panel of experts including teaching school leaders, training providers and education specialists.
The MYP eAssessment was introduced in 2016 and pushes students well beyond the rote memorization of subject-specific content—75% focuses on inquiry, communication and critical thinking skills. MYP eAssessment includes on-screen examinations with interactive tools and multimedia and serves as a good example of how the IB is constantly striving to innovate and improve its curriculum frameworks and assessments.
In 2018, the MYP eAssessment won 'Best use of summative assessment' in the eAssessment Awards in London, UK, and 'Best assessment solution' at the ScooNews Global Education Awards in Udaipur, India.
The winners of The Teach Secondary Awards will be announced in the October edition of the Teach Secondary Magazine.
Take a look at this webinar to find out how MYP schools that participated in the May 2018 examination session experienced MYP eAssessments and how they impacted their school practices.
