Assessment Policy

The International Magnet School aims to develop internationally minded global citizens who take action for a better, more peaceful world. We are committed to providing equity, excellence, and success for all through high-quality educational services. At IMS, we believe that assessment should guide instruction in order to meet the needs of all learners. By assessing both the process and the product we gain insight into the individual learner. Assessment allows teachers, staff, parents, and students to reflect on:

  • Acquisition of knowledge (New Learning)
  • Understanding of concepts
  • Mastery of skills
  • Development of attributes/ attitudes
  • Decision to take responsible action

The Assessment Policy below shares our philosophy on teaching, learning, assessing, and reflecting.
