Winston Churchill IBMYP Grades
The following chart outlines the system of IB grades that will be assigned, along with the traditional letter grade, A-F. These IB grades should be viewed as predictive. Year-end IB grades represent a student's final achievement levels in all criteria of a given subject. Achievement levels are determined using IB MYP criteria, not traditional letter grades or percentages.
IB Grades are assigned during the following grading periods:
Year Long Courses - Assigned 2nd and 4th Quarter
Quarter-On/Quarter-Off Courses - Assigned 3rd and 4th Quarter
Trimester Courses - 6th Grade Language Wheel - NO IB Grades Assigned, students are not assessed using IB Rubrics
***IB Marks will be assigned for all courses 3rd and 4th quarter to allow ample time for IB Assessments within classes.
