More than 89,201 MYP students from around the world receive their eAssessment (e-Portfolios and on-screen examinations), and personal projects results, from the May 2022 examination session today.
1003 IB World Schools in 110 countries submitted students' personal projects. A truly personal and creative piece of work based on an area of personal interest, the mandatory personal project is a culminating MYP project that all students develop in their final year of the programme.
Olli-Pekka Heinonen, Director General of the International Baccalaureate said:
“I am immensely proud of all our MYP students for reaching this milestone. They have built a solid foundation that enables them to embark on their next educational journey. Their commitment to their learning is a huge source of inspiration. On behalf of the entire IB family, I would also like to thank our global community of IB World Schools, educators, and teachers for the tremendous efforts and hard work for the benefit of our IB students”.
Schools have the option to register for the MYP eAssessment that includes ePortfolios of coursework and on-screen examinations. For the May 2022 examination session over 240 IB World Schools in 59 countries participated in the optional MYP eAssessement, representing a 13.4% increase in registrations.
The MYP eAssessment aims to challenge students to think critically and independently while solving real-world problems using a broad range of knowledge. The on-screen examinations are unique because as well as being technologically innovative students also use authentic assessment approaches to demonstrate conceptual understanding and the ability to apply knowledge in complex, unfamiliar contexts, including the use of global contexts.

Students who registered for the full MYP certificate received an average score of 37.72 points (of 56 possible maximum).
In light of the exceptional circumstances surrounding the May 2022 examination session, alternative task assessments were available for the small number of students who were unable to take the on-screen assessments at school due to government mandates or restrictions.
Across the globe, MYP students welcomed the results and approach taken by the IB this year.
“The MYP has been a unique curriculum, presenting me with ample opportunity to grow academically and holistically. The e-Portfolio and Personal project were the most eye-opening for me. Working on these subjects, I could showcase most of the ATL skills I had learnt, such as self-management when it came to accurate planning to meet deadlines”.

The MYP builds on the knowledge, skills and attitudes developed by the Primary Years Programme (PYP). It also prepares students for the Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP) by reflecting the depth, breadth and balance that characterizes all IB programmes, ensuring a smooth transition for students who continue their education within the IB continuum.
