Victoria Shanghai Academy MYP Assessment and Reporting

What is the MYP? The Middle Years Programme (MYP) framework is part of the International
Baccalaureate continuum of student-centred learning and teaching, which is grounded in the learner profile.
How are students assessed? Through a variety of
tasks, students are assessed in four criteria in each
discipline. Each criterion is a description of a required
standard outlining what an exemplary piece of work
should include. There is a maximum score of 8 for
each criterion and the scores obtained for each
criterion are combined to make a score out of 32.
Grade boundaries are applied so that each student
receives an overall grade for a subject, between 1 (low)
and 7 (high). The grade boundaries for all subjects are
seen in the table below.

6-9

How do I read the VSA report card? Under the subject heading, the scores attained for each of the
criteria are given (out of 8). This is the level at which the student is currently working. Since each subject
requires different skills and knowledge, each subject group has different criteria. Students are encouraged
to digest the criteria and to use them to understand how they learn and how they can improve.
Approaches to Learning Skills: The Approaches to Learning (ATL) skills are designed to help students
understand and become proactive in the ways in which they learn. The aim of the ATL skills is to promote
successful lifelong learners who have acquired skills of effective thinking and learning. Given these skills,
students will be equipped to face variety of challenges in their secondary education and beyond. Teachers
report on an area of strength and an area for improvement in each subject using the following framework:

Homeroom Teacher's Comment
Kobe has enjoyed a wonderful start to his secondary schooling. He is a dedicated student
whose efforts are appreciated by almost all of his teachers. He is a quietly spoken leader in our
homeroom who always looks for the positives in any situation. Kobe's musical talents have
seen him win the House Music Instrumental Award this year, an outstanding achievement for
a year six student. This term, Kobe has been involved in the mathematics ATYP as well as the
school basketball team, orchestra and ensemble.

Chinese Language and Literature

Kobe is an active student who clearly enjoys English.


He showed good knowledge and understanding during
his group presentation on Flour Babies. His structure
and organisation in writing is of a very high standard.
Kobe has an ability to empathise and analyse differing
perspectives which he expresses particularly well in his
writing. He does proofread his work but should continue
to focus on this in order to avoid any unnecessary
mistakes. Overall, Kobe has had a very strong start to
the year.

Science

Kobe has a good foundation of the Mathematical


concepts he has learned so far. He is able to effectively
apply his knowledge in applying what he has learned to
various tasks. He also displays a positive attitude when
approaching new challenges and makes good use of his
class time. Kobe is encouraged to continue in this
positive, responsible manner in all aspects of his work
and continue challenge himself by working on questions
in new and unfamiliar contexts.

Kobe has achieved a good overall result in Science this


term. Kobe has good communication skills which he
uses to show his knowledge of the work covered but
should look to further develop his data processing skills.
Kobe works very productively with his classmates on
their group activities and assignments.

Kobe is able to perform and develop a range of skills,


tactics and understanding in some activities covered in
PHE lessons. He works enthusiastically and skillfully to
develop and refine techniques. I would like to see him
try to understand more skills in order to reflect on his
performance.

Effort

I have no doubt that Kobe enjoys this subject, but I have


yet to see him working to the best of his ability. Kobe is
easily distracted and must make an improved effort to
remain on task. There are times when Kobe is easily
distracted by his friends, and this can result in a lack of
productivity during lessons. As a target for next year
Kobe should aim to come to lessons fully prepared to
work hard and make good progress.

Learner Profile Development


Contribution

Kobe's performance in Individuals and Societies this


term has been very pleasing. In a recent geographical
investigation, Kobe's responses exemplified substantial
knowledge and understanding of the four countries
studied. He accessed and synthesised relevant
information from source material in significant depth.
Moreover, he communicated his ideas in a way that was
mostly clear and illuminating. Finally, in another
inquiry dealing with multi-culturalism, Kobe reflected
critically and engagingly on the concept of culture.

Teacher: Mr Chau

Criterion A: Inquiring and analysing

Grade

Kobe demonstrated good knowledge and understanding


in his research project on landscapes. Kobe showed
evidence of planning and his art work was executed to a
good standard. His developmental workbook had a great
deal of personal reflection based on his own creative
process as well as in consideration of peer and teacher
advice. Kobe was completely engaged in the creative
process throughout. He showed commitment to his own
development as well as offering encouragement and
support to his peers.
