The PYP outlines four dimensions of assessment – monitoring, documenting, measuring, and reporting. Understanding the function of each assessment type can feel very difficult when done out of context. As educators, we often find ourselves asking: What does this really look like in practice in classrooms?

I have developed this cycle of assessment to showcase what the assessment process can look like in action. Check out this educator tips video for a deeper dive into the assessment cycle and get practical examples of what it might look like in practice.
