MYP Visual Arts Criteria

There are four criteria/objectives used in arts for grading.

The MYP Arts Objectives

Let’s look at each criterion separately.

A Investigating
B Developing
C Creating/Performing
D Evaluating

Let’s look at the way these are graded. Now note, that this grading scale is meant for MYP1/Novice, but it applies to all MYP years, where the terminology differs slightly.

B
C

D

This is taken directly from the new MYP Visual Arts Guide, September 2022. The old guide went by criteria – A Knowing and understanding, B Developing skills, C Creativity, and D Responding.

Both MYP and DP require a frequent use of the Art Journal, which is a sketchbook that the school provides. The journal can be in any form though, and if a student chooses, it can even be digital.

I hope this helps to understand grading of arts a bit better. These criteria apply to MYP. DP Visual Arts has a different structure, where the students create – Process Portfolio, Comparative Study, Exhibiton, and also have time to develop, document, and exhibit their artwork.
