The exams in our school are different: they’re not just written projects, but a collaborative experience.
What if the traditional school exam was a group project developed collaboratively by the students?
In the PYP (Primary Years Programme), learning is viewed as a continuous journey. In their final year, students carry out an extended, in-depth, collaborative project known as the PYP exhibition. This involves students working collaboratively to conduct an in-depth inquiry into real life issues or problems and then share it with the whole school community. The exhibition provides teachers with a powerful and authentic process for assessing student understanding and also represents a unique opportunity to celebrate the transition of learners to the next phase of their education.
For a month, the PYP5 students of our H-International School became researchers, scholars, scientists, and project managers to create an insightful and purposeful project work, that they presented to their teachers and parents on April 11.
