Hello from the “Middle”!
As we come to the close of quarter 2, you will be receiving a second report on the academic progress that your child is making here at UNIS Hanoi Middle School.
The quarter 2 report will that show initial criteria levels in each course. Criteria levels in MYP courses range from 1-8 and there are four criteria in each MYP course. These levels have been arrived at by multiple pieces of formative and summative assessment evidence and represent the progress made by your student during this first half of the 18/19 school year.
Comments are not part of this quarter 2 report. Students receive regular feedback in their classes including comments designed to help them improve performance on future assessments.
In quarter 3, starting Monday 21 January, UNIS Hanoi Middle School teachers will be “opening” their Veracross Gradebooks for students and parents. You will be able to see posted assessment calendars, view teacher feedback, track assignment completion, and see levels of achievement on completed assessments. Clarity on student progress and parent ability to assist their students should all benefit from this process.
This will be a transition and your patience and input are appreciated. We will address questions that may arise as they come and in future UNIS Middle School Admin coffee mornings.
