Grading System of IB Board 2018
The assessments of the students are done on the standards of the international level. The assessment tests the extent to which the students have mastered the advanced skills of the academic curriculum. They are assessed on the skills of analyzing and presenting the learned/gathered information, constructing and evaluating arguments, creatively solving problems, retaining the acquired information, applying the standard methods. The assessment is done by checking the performance on a set standard and not by competitive marking among the students. IB uses both internal and external assessment methods. The external assessment includes essays, short-response, data-response, text-response and case-study questions. The internal assessment includes the oral work in languages along with fieldwork in subjects like geography, laboratory work in science, investigation work in mathematics and the overall artistic performance. The end results of the course are graded on a scale of 1 (lowest) and 7 (highest). The reflective projects within a course are graded from A to E, A being the highest. The IB assures the quality of its schools by making them participate in an ongoing process of review and development.
