The Assessed Curriculum
Assessment is an important part of each unit of inquiry as it both enhances learning and provides opportunities for students to reflect on what they know, understand and can do. The teacher’s feedback to the students provides the guidance, the tools and the incentive for them to become more competent, more skillful and better at understanding how to learn.
Deciding on how best to teach and how best to assess student learning is a collaborative process within the school. The IB has developed a planning tool to support effective collaboration on the part of all teachers and the IB coordinator.
