MYP design aims to provide the means and the context to help students become skillful problem solvers, who can appreciate the role of technology in everyday life and society and who can respond critically and resourcefully to real life challenges. This is done through the use of the design cycle. Our goals are to challenge all students to apply practical and creative thinking skills to solve design problems, to encourage students to explore the role of design in both historical and contemporary contexts, and to raise students’ awareness of their responsibilities as world citizens when making decisions and taking action on design issues. MYP design courses are assessed against four criteria, each with a maximum achievement level of eight.
MYP Design assessment criteria:
- Criterion A: Inquiring and analyzing
- Criterion B: Developing ideas
- Criterion C: Creating the solutions
- Criterion D: Evaluating
