Assessment

Teachers in the primary department of the International School carry out all of the assessment of student work in the PYP. There are no external examinations.

We assess the children’s daily progress within the classroom and we assess at the end of the teaching and learning process. This summative assessment provides opportunities for the children to demonstrate what they have learned.

Each child will have a portfolio of achievements and accomplishments which documents their educational progress. In the final year of PYP all students carry out an extended, collaborative inquiry project known as the PYP Exhibition. Both the portfolio and the PYP Exhibition form part of the assessment process.
