The MYP eAssessment was introduced in 2016 for MYP Year 5 students (aged 16). The on-screen assessment goes beyond rote memorisation; 75 per cent of the assessment focuses on inquiry, communication and critical thinking skills.

Developing real-world skills

Chief Assessment Officer, Paula Wilcock, said, “It is wonderful to see an increased number of students taking part in MYP on-screen assessments. We remain committed to delivering media rich, interactive assessments that assess real-world skills such as communication and critical thinking.”Following its founding in 1968, the first IB exams took place in 1971 with a total of 29 students taking part. Since then the IB has been the global success story with currently more than 1.7 million IB students attending 4,896 schools in 153 countries.For more education and school related news, visit our Education and Schools pages.Access hundreds of global services and suppliers in our Online DirectoryClick to get to the Relocate Global Online Directory  Get access to our free Global Mobility Toolkit Global Mobility Toolkit download factsheets resource centre© 2018.
