IB English Tutoring
What is IB?
The aim of all International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world. With an innovative, international approach, students learn in ways that develop their full potential.
Who is it for?
The four programmes offered are:
- The Primary Years Programme (PYP), for students 3-12 years old
- The Middle Years Programme (MYP), for students 11-16 years old
- The Diploma Programme (DP), for students 16-19 years old
- The Career-related Programme (CP), for students 16-19 years old
How is it assessed?
The IBDP uses both internally and externally assessed components to assess student performance. For most courses, written examinations at the end of the DP form the basis of the assessment. This is because these examinations have high levels of objectivity and reliability.
Externally assessed coursework, completed by students over an extended period under authenticated teacher supervision, forms part of the assessment for several programme areas, including the theory of knowledge (TOK) essay and the extended essay (EE).
In most subjects, students also complete in-school assessment tasks. These are either externally assessed or marked by teachers and then moderated by the IB.
In the DP, students receive grades ranging from 7 to 1, with 7 being highest. Students receive a grade for each DP course attempted.
