The IB Middle Years Programme


The Bilingual Course uses the MYP assessment framework established by the IBO when evaluating assessments and assigning grades. At the end of each year, teachers award a grade called the MYP grade on a scale of 1-7 (7 being the highest).

Since the Bilingual Course follows the guidelines from the Mombukagakusho (MEXT) and the assessment policy of the Gyoshu Junior High School, students also receive a Gyoshu grade. Gyoshu grades are awarded on a scale of 1 – 10 (with 10 being the highest). The Gyoshu grade for students in the Bilingual Course comes from the application of the MYP criteria and the effort grade.

Written reports of student progress are sent to parents in July, December and March. Parent-student-teacher conferences are scheduled in mid- July and mid-December. Written reports include: student’s performance level for every criteria in each subject, MYP subject grade, effort grade, Gyoshu grade, subject teacher’s comments, school-wide examinations, reading grade and other tests such as the Kanji test and English vocabulary test. The written reports are presented and explained by the homeroom teacher during the parent-student-teacher conferences.

The principles of assessment at Gyoshu High School are as follows:
