All existing summative & formative assessment tasks together with resources will carry forward into MYP Next Chapter seamlessly and will be available via Add Resources and the Subject Library.
|Current Subject Groups||MYP Next Chapter|
|Language A||Language and literature|
|Language B||Language acquisition|

Subject group names together with assessment criteria & objectives within the planners and gradebook will be updated in July 2014 before the start of the academic year and will be effective for all classes created after August 1, 2014.
When copying over an old assessment task, you will be prompted to update the assessment criteria. Similarly for old unit plans, you will be prompted to indicate the global context, key & related concepts and statement of inquiry.
Assessment & reporting for the 2013-2014 academic year will remain the same with the old subject guides and with the grade boundaries provided in the MYP Coordinator's Handbook for 2013-2014.
