External assessment

Staff Learning 53

As well as the external (I)GCSE and IB Diploma examinations in the High School at the end of Grade 10 and Grade 12 respectively, UWCSEA gathers information on how student learning at UWCSEA compares against international norms in mathematical literacy, reading and writing.

We have implemented the International Schools Assessment (ISA) for all students in Grades 3–10 since 2015. The data gathered by the ISA is used to help monitor student achievement over time, better identify patterns, and to help us to monitor and modify our educational programme to ensure that it meets objective standards.

Importantly, individual reports on outcomes from the ISA are provided to parents. This report contains information about how an individual student compares against their peers at UWCSEA and in other international and national system schools. This is particularly important for families transitioning to other schools and curriculum systems. Some international schools use assessments developed for national education systems. However, as these are quite different in many areas and it can be hard for teachers and parents to know how different systems compare, we believe the ISA provides a more appropriate and useful benchmark.
 

What is the International Schools Assessment (ISA)?

The ISA is designed for students in international schools whose language of instruction is English. It covers Grades 3–10 and is based on the reading, mathematical literacy and scientific literacy frameworks of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).

The ISA is designed and developed in Australia by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). In 2014 and 2015 more than 73,000 students from 360 international schools participated in the assessment.
