NATURAL SCIENCE 
Assessment Criteria Year 1
Assessment for YEAR 1 science course of the programme is criterion-related, 
based on four equally weighted assessment criteria. 
Criterion A Knowing and understanding Maximum 8 
Criterion B Inquiring and designing Maximum 8 
Criterion C Processing and evaluating Maximum 8 
Criterion D Reflecting on the impacts of science Maximum 8 
In the MYP, subject group objectives correspond to assessment criteria. Each 
criterion has nine possible levels of achievement (0–8), divided into four bands 
that generally represent limited (1–2); adequate (3–4);substantial (5–6); and 
excellent (7–8) performance. Each band has its own unique descriptor which 
teachers use to make “best-fit” judgments about students’ progress and 
achievement.
Criterion A: Knowing and understanding Maximum 8 
At the end of year 1, students should be able to: 
i. outline scientific knowledge 
ii. apply scientific knowledge and understanding to solve problems set in familiar situations and suggest 
iii. solutions to problems set in unfamiliar situations 
iv. interpret information to make scientifically supported judgments. 
Achievement

Assessment criteria nc 2014 1º

  • 1. NATURAL SCIENCE Assessment Criteria Year 1
  • 2. Assessment for YEAR 1 science course of the programme is criterion-related, based on four equally weighted assessment criteria. Criterion A Knowing and understanding Maximum 8 Criterion B Inquiring and designing Maximum 8 Criterion C Processing and evaluating Maximum 8 Criterion D Reflecting on the impacts of science Maximum 8 In the MYP, subject group objectives correspond to assessment criteria. Each criterion has nine possible levels of achievement (0–8), divided into four bands that generally represent limited (1–2); adequate (3–4);substantial (5–6); and excellent (7–8) performance. Each band has its own unique descriptor which teachers use to make “best-fit” judgments about students’ progress and achievement.
  • 3. Criterion A: Knowing and understanding Maximum 8 At the end of year 1, students should be able to: i. outline scientific knowledge ii. apply scientific knowledge and understanding to solve problems set in familiar situations and suggest iii. solutions to problems set in unfamiliar situations iv. interpret information to make scientifically supported judgments. Achievement level Level descriptor 0 The student does not reach a standard indicated by any of the descriptors below. 1-2 The student is able to: i. select scientific knowledge ii. select scientific knowledge and understanding to suggest solutions to iii. problems set in familiar situations iv. apply information to make judgments, with limited success.. 3-4 The student is able to: i. recall scientific knowledge ii. apply scientific knowledge and understanding to suggest solutions to problems set in familiar situations iii. apply information to make judgments. 5-6 The student is able to: i. state scientific knowledge ii. apply scientific knowledge and understanding to solve problems set in familiar situations iii. apply information to make scientifically supported judgments. 7-8 The student is able to: i. outline scientific knowledge ii. apply scientific knowledge and understanding to solve problems set in familiar situations and suggest solutions to problems set in unfamiliar situations iii. interpret information to make scientifically supported judgments.
