IB Middle Years Program Assessment

Each IB MYP subject has 4 criteria, which are formally assessed at least 2 times a year. Below are the assessed criteria for each subject of the IB Middle Years Program, with links to the MYP rubrics that describe achievement levels for year 5 (10th grade) level students.

Teachers may adapt the rubrics to make them student-friendly and specific to a given assignment, without changing the bold words that describe achievement levels.  Teachers will name assignments in Gradebook beginning with the letter of the MYP criterion being assessed.
