Assessment at Struer Statsgymnasium

(Diploma Programme assessment – Principles and practice)

Assessment of the DP is high-stakes, criterion-related performance assessment. It is based on

the following aims, which are elaborated in the remainder of this section.

1. DP assessment should support the curricular and philosophical goals of the programme,

through the encouragement of good classroom practice and appropriate student learning.

2. The published results of DP assessment (that is, subject grades) must have a sufficiently

high level of reliability, appropriate to a high-stakes university entrance qualification.

3. DP assessment must reflect the international-mindedness of the programme wherever

possible, must avoid cultural bias, and must make appropriate allowance for students

working in their second language.

4. DP assessment must pay appropriate attention to the higher-order cognitive skills

(synthesis, reflection, evaluation, critical thinking) as well as the more fundamental

cognitive skills (knowledge, understanding and application).

5. Assessment for each subject must include a suitable range of tasks and instruments/

components that ensure all objectives for the subject are assessed.

6. The principal means of assessing student achievement and determining subject grades

should be the professional judgment of [the subject teacher].
