Reply to the concerns related to MYP, raised during Connect session

Reply to the concerns related to MYP, raised during Connect session

Dear Parents,

During last Connect meeting held on 14th September, 2016, few concerns and queries were raised regarding MYP. I would like to provide answers and guidance for each of the queries raised during that session.

1. Concern regarding the number of unit test/formative assessment conducted so far, sending of checked papers at home, number of assigned homework per week etc.

The following link will provide comprehensive data regarding number of unit tests/formative assessments conducted so far in all MYP subjects, the number of papers that have been sent home, the number of homework given per subject and current status of resource folder.

Data regarding no. of unit test conducted till 16th Sep and homework for MYP

Parents are requested to note the following things-

  • All formative and most of the summative assessment (checked) papers have already been handed over to the students. When we send unit test log to the parents, before that we handover the papers. Parents are requested to ask their wards to show the papers. In case if the child doesn’t carry the paper then please ask the concerned teacher and clarify the matter. Now onward, after handing over summative assessment papers, we will also inform parents through blog post. Students need to keep these papers at home.
  • While sharing the unit test record log, we will also mention whether the paper has been handed over to the students or not.
  • Homework is regularly assigned but submission of homework is not happening consistently. From our side, we will definitely ensure that students complete the assigned task on time but parents are also requested to ensure that children complete the homework and submit them on time.

2. How to prepare students for their term 1 examination.

  • This is a valid concern. As grade 7 students are going to appear for a formal examination for the first time, they will guided by their teachers. We already have revision plan in place. Revision will happen in all subjects from 1st October.
  • In the resource folder (Name- Grade 7: Resources for Students and Parents), we will also upload Formative and Summative assessment papers for your reference. The Term assessment papers will have similar kind of questions. Also note, the questions will not be exactly same.
  • We will keep on adding more resources in the shared Resource folder.
  • Blog post regarding the nature of question paper and syllabus has already been done for all the MYP subjects where Term assessment will happen.
  • Students are highly recommended to make their own revision plan at home to revise all the topics taught so far in all the subjects. In senior school, students need to develop their own study habits.

3. In order to score well, how to make the students aware of their areas of improvement.

Kindly note the following action plan-

  • Now onwards teachers will write the feedback on the formative assessment paper to provide guidance.
  • Wherever possible and as per the nature of the assessment task, we will upload the formative assessment rubric/task specific clarification in the ‘Grade 7: Resources for Students and Parents’ folder.

In case if you have any further query related to MYP programme, please feel free to ask me. You can also meet me tomorrow during Open house.

We welcome and appreciate all constructive feedback in order to improve teaching and learning at FS.

Thanks and regards

Saolee Roy
