Moving towards eAssessment with the Middle Years Programme (MYP)

Presented by

Peter Fidczuk, Robert Harrison Simon Pullen

About this talk

Over the last few years, a long-running debate has been taking place about what are the appropriate approaches to assessment for today’s world and, since the conventional assessment of GCSEs and A levels was suspended during COVID-19, this debate has intensified with calls to replace GCSEs. Additionally, the pandemic accelerated the development of the digital classroom, and so, digital, or e-Assessments, are now on the horizon. Just what this will look like is open to question. For instance, AQA’s trial of digital GCSEs is exploring adaptive – or ‘smart’ – assessments that adjust in difficulty as students progress through the test. The International Baccalaureate (IB) has been assessing learning digitally since 2016 in its curriculum for 11 – 16 year olds, the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and has taken an alternative approach which utilises the full potential of the digital environment to assess knowledge and skills and to enhance learning in the classroom through a positive ‘backwash’ effect. Following the IB’s presentation at the ‘Next generation assessment – planning for the future’, (which is being held on the 17 Jan 2023 a conference sponsored by the ASCL, HMC and other organisations), we would like to invite you to learn more about the MYP and the IB’s approach to digital assessment. Join our free webinar at 1pm (GMT) on Thursday 26 January in partnership with the IB to learn more. The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) is for students aged 11-16.
