Last month, Cedar congratulated members of the Class of 2019 for their success on the International Baccalaureate Diploma exams. We are now pleased to share news of IB MYP eAssessment results, which were released in August.
The MYP eAsssessments are taken by Grade 10 students as they complete the IB Middle Years Programme. By passing the exams, students earn the IB MYP Certificate, the IB equivalent of the GCSE/IGCSE. The MYP eAssessments were introduced by the IB in 2016 and have been recognized internationally as an innovative and meaningful assessment that “pushes students well beyond the rote memorization of subject-specific content—75% focuses on inquiry, communication and critical thinking skills.”
We are very happy to report that 14 Cedar students received the MYP Certificate, earning an average score of 37 points. This included six students who scored between 39 and 46 points. The global average this year was 36 points.
“We are very proud of these students, as well as the talented faculty members who supported them on their journey through the MYP,” noted Cedar Director Scott Crawford. “The results are very promising as these students matriculate to Grade 11 and start the IB Diploma Programme. We look forward to charting their continued success.”
