• Each criterion is divided into various achievement levels (numerical values) that appear in bands, and each band contains general, qualitative value statements called level descriptors.
  • The levels 1 and 2 appear as the first band, levels 3 and 4 as the second band, and so on. Level 0 is available for work that is not described by the band descriptor for levels 1 and 2.
  • All criteria have four bands and a maximum of eight achievement levels.
  • All MYP subject groups have four assessment criteria divided into four bands, each of which represents two levels of achievement.
  • MYP criteria are equally weighted–each out of 8 points.
