Classwork: Engaged with learning environment
(individually or in groups)
HW: reflection of time and thought
Summative, end of unit tests: examine specific
knowledge/skills over a limited period. Exams:
require recall a greater pool of knowledge over a
greater length of time
Some subjects these are critical, others, a
component.
Early indicators
Consistent “7”, excellent, will equal a HL.
Consistent “6”, very good, will nearly always
equal a HL.
A “5” good, depends on a “low” or ‘high” solid 5,
and the trend in student learning.
A “4” satisfactory, usually equates to a Standard
level.
A “3” mediocre usually equals a non eligibility for
DP.

Theory of Knowledge (TOK)
No content course
About different ways of knowing (reason,
emotion, language, perception)
Stimulates critical reflection on Knowledge
and experience, builds on MYP ATLs
Q: “How do I know what I know, until I
see what I say?”
TOK essay titles (prescribed titles /
examples)
“Seek simplicity, and distrust it” (A.N. Whitehead). Is it
always good advice for a knower?
“Context is all” (M. Atwood). Does this mean there is no
such thing as truth?
“What separates science from all other human activities,
is its belief in the provisional nature of all conclusions”.
Critically evaluate this way of distinguishing the sciences
from other areas of knowledge.
Are reason and emotion equally necessary in justifying
moral decisions?
