Assessment is an important part of the instructional cycle. It provides information about student learning and development, as well as a framework for planning, collaboration, and self-reflection. WLHS believes that learning can be measured through a variety of assessments. Measurement of student achievement is based on the belief that assessment of students serves four basic functions: formative assessment, summative assessment, diagnostic assessment, and assessment for program placement.
IB assessments are broken into two categories: internal assessments (IA) and external assessments (EA). Both the IA’s and the EA’s are assessments which have been designed by IB.

IB Assessment calendar
The Washington-Liberty IB faculty has collaborated to create a calendar of IB assessments by course. While this calendar might change slightly during the year, it is a very good guide. It is a great tool for students to use in planning ahead to manage their time.
