Curriculum changes are implemented on ManageBac at varying times depending on the programme:
- New subject guide changes in the DP and MYP are introduced over the summer in July. While the subject guides are often released earlier in the calendar year (e.g. for MYP Individuals and societies and Language acquisition in January), it is not practical for us to implement changes until the subject guide goes into effect, which is normally August-September. This is because schools performing assessment & reporting from May to July still use the old subject guides and the old assessment criteria.
- New Diploma forms from the Handbook of Procedures are implemented in October shortly after the publication of the new Handbook of Procedures on OCC.
- MYP final grade boundaries are updated in October following the publication of the MYP Coordinator Handbook.
We make every effort to ensure that the forms & assessment criteria on ManageBac are kept up-to-date and consistent with the IB curriculum.
