Student Assessment in IB Math Studies




I will be using a variety of assessment strategies, whether it be the regular tests, quizzes, and homework assignments, or other creative manners through with can demonstrate your mastery of skills/concepts (i.e. model building, producing videos/movies, teaching peers, etc ...) Your evaluation throughout the course will be comprised of the following assessment criteria:



(1) Knowledge/Understanding of skills and concepts

(2) Application of the skills/concepts in modeling scenarios

(3) Thinking/Inquiry/Problem Solving related to either pure or applied math

(4) Your ability to communicate your knowledge


The ISM percentage grade you earn in SEMESTER 1 of the course is comprised of the following:

 

Major Assessments

Major assessments are usually the summative tests that take place at the end of each major unit and evaluate students' understanding of a wide range of concepts learned over a period of several weeks. Furthermore, some long term projects are assigned each semester so that the students gain experience in writing mathematical investigation projects and modeling tasks.

Minor Assessments

Minor assessments usually take the form of quizzes and assignments that focus on a small number of concepts learned over the previous few classes. They allow the teacher the opportunity to provide valuable feedback to the students on the accuracy of their solutions and their comprehension of the material.
