New Secondary Automated Marking System

The Office of the Secretary General of The European School has implemented an online correction tool for the European Baccalaureate Exam, commencing in 2017.  The objective of the automated marking tool is to increase accuracy, reliability and anonymity. The attached newsletters explain the project and the related testing, training and implementation.

We recommend all parents of students from S1- S7 read the attachments and send any questions or concerns to Secondary Director Ulvi Soomlais and the ES Bergen Parents’ Association.
