MYP eAssessment webinar series

Last updated:

This four-part webinar series on eAssessment takes a look at best practice, current research and the future of assessment within the Middle Years Programme (MYP).

This webinar series invites participants to consider eAssessment and its backwash effect on assessment in all MYP years. The document, Assessment principles and practices - Quality assessments in a digital age, provides a point of departure to consider how we can use information and media literacy to develop and support learning in MYP classrooms. Each webinar will introduce general research and resources regarding MYP eAssessment. A facilitator will also interview a key person in the eAssessment world in order to help us further develop our understanding of how this might benefit students in our classrooms. All webinars will be interactive and will allow for the exchange of ideas in real time using an open mic format following the guest presentation.
