Walker Middle Magnet
Starting in the 2 nd quarter, you will see an additional grade for each subject. This means there will be 8 additional grades indicated by a number. 7
This number will represent your IB Grade for the 1 st semester (1 st half of the year) this school year.
Throughout the school year, some of the assignments you complete will count toward your IB grade. Your teacher will let you know which assignments these are.
An assignment for which you can earn an IB grade won’t be a multiple choice test. It will be something you create or present or a task you will complete. Some examples are: a speech, a PowerPoint, an essay description or to create a model or a poster.
IB assignments will always have a corresponding rubric to help you know exactly what you need to do to earn the highest grade. Depending on the class, you will have the opportunity to earn a certain score on those specific assignments. (For example: a 5 or a 7.)
Your teacher will then use a formula to come up with a grade between a one and a seven no matter what subject it is. This is the grade that you will see on your report card.
You might have a unit question in humanities that is “How can one person make a difference in society?” For the entire unit, you will learn about different societies and how people can make a difference.
After the unit, your teacher might give you an assignment to create a PowerPoint about a leader in history who has influenced society. Note: IB Assignments are probably a lot like assignments you normally do in class anyways.
Achievement Level Student Friendly language 0 The student does not meet the standard described by and descriptors given. 1-2 The student can choose and use some relevant information. The student displays minimal (very few) analytical skills. 3-4 The student selects and uses mostly relevant information. The student’s work lacks the required depth in analysis. 5-6 The student selects and uses relevant information. Student work shows satisfactory evidence of analysis. 7-8 The student chooses and uses a range of relevant information. Student work shows a good level of critical analysis. 9-10The student selects and uses a wide range of relevant information. Student work shows a high level of critical analysis. Arguments, decisions and judgments
After you are tested on all the criterion for humanities, your teacher would use an IB formula to determine a final, overall, IB grade for humanities. This number would be between a 1 and a 7. This process will repeat in the 2 nd semester (2 nd half of the school year).
