Programme evaluation is the primary means of ensuring that JQUS is meeting the IB programme standards and practices. This process can also serve as a catalyst for school improvement.
Programme evaluation: • is both a requirement and a service provided by the IB to IB World Schools • is a reflective exercise that involves the entire school community • assesses whether a school meets the IB standards and practices and will remain an authorized IB World School • supports school efforts to continually improve the delivery of the programme(s) • results in a clear plan for next steps and future actions • can result in improved teaching and learning.
The aim of programme evaluation is to: • evaluate the extent to which the school is meeting the programme standards and practices • improve implementation by identifying strengths and weaknesses, and determining areas for future focus • serve as a vehicle to reinforce the support and commitment for the programme from all stakeholders in the community.
Our last DP satisfactory evaluation cycle occurred SY15-16.
