Evaluating Goals and Product

Reflection Prompts

Consider the impact of the learning and the product. 

Evidence of the ATLs

Students will select which ATLs best helped them with their learning goal and the creation of their product when they write criterion B of their report. Students will provide evidence to show how they used their ATLS.

Evidence might be: visual thinking diagrams, bulleted lists, charts, short paragraphs, notes, timelines, action plans, annotated illustrations, annotated research, artefacts from visits to museums, performances or galleries, pictures, photographs, sketches, up to 30 seconds of visual or audio material, screenshots of a blog of website, self and peer-assessment feedback.

The success of the ATLs

When reflecting on the success of their product and learning goal (criterion C) students may wish to make connections to the ATLs. How did their use of these skills help them be successful? What was most challenging to them? What skill did they develop the most?

Reflecting on the ATLs in Managebac

When writing journal entries in ManageBac, students can select the ATLs which relate to each entry. This will help students to track which skill types they use most and will help them reflect and find evidence of the skills used throughout the project.

What are Approaches to Learning?

In order for students to grow as autonomous learners, the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) intentionally teaches Approaches to Learning (ATL) skills to help students build on the process of learning.
