Last month, Cedar congratulated members of the Class of 2020 for their success on the International Baccalaureate Diploma exams. We are now delighted to share news of IB Middle Years Programme 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 13 Cedar students received the full MYP Certificate, earning an average score of 42 points which is our best ever average score, exceeding our previous record by 5 points and this year’s global average by 4 points. More than 83,000 students in 102 countries participated this year. The global average score was 38 points (out of a possible 56 maximum).

“We are very proud of our Grade 10 students, as well as the talented secondary teachers and leadership team 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 challenging IB Diploma Programme. We look forward to charting their continued success.”
