All middle campus courses are assessed on a semester (half year) basis even where subjects run for the full year. Some subjects particularly in the Arts, Technology and Health & PE are semester length courses only.
Reports published on Daymap at the end of term will show the final results students have achieved in the first semester against the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP) criteria for each subject.
These results will be in grade levels from 0 to 7 with 7 being the equivalent of an A+ and 0 the equivalent of an E.
A grade 4 is considered a passing grade while a 3 shows that the student needs to do a lot of work to develop their understanding if they are to continue with the subject.
Students are encouraged to reflect on their results and consider what they need to do to improve for semester 2. They can set themselves goals and seek advice and help from their teachers.
