Event description


WEBINAR: Gareth Hegarty, Senior Manager, eAssessment Transition at International Baccalaureate Organization (UK) Limited, IB Global Centre Cardiff.

In 2016, the International Baccalaureate (IB) introduced eAssessment as the basis for summative assessment of its Middle Years Programme (MYP). MYP eAssessment features on-screen examinations which make use of multimedia and interactive tools to provide an immersive assessment experience and challenges students to demonstrate knowledge and conceptual understanding as well as enquiry and communication skills. This presentation will explain how the assessment system has been designed to meet the particular needs of the Middle Years Programme and those of large scale summative assessment. The performance of the system since its introduction in 2016 and the effects on teaching and learning will also be discussed along with implications for the future of assessment of IB programmes.
