WIS IB PYP CURRICULUM: The Assessed Curriculum
The purposes of assessment are to:
promote student learning
provide information about student learning
contribute to the successful implementation of the programme.
Assessment in the Primary Years Programme identifies what students know, understand, can do and value at different stages in the teaching and learning process. Learning is viewed as a continuous journey, where teachers identify
students’ needs and use assessment data to plan the next stage of their learning.
There are three types of assessment: diagnostic, formative, and summative. Although are three are generally referred to simply as assessment, there are distinct differences between the three.
