Highlights in the training program

According to Mr. Faizol Musacho, the IBDP International Baccalaureate Program was established in 1968, for students aged 16-19 or the last two years of high school. The training philosophy is to encourage students around the globe to become active lifelong learners who are compassionate and respectful of differences.

IBDP's teaching model includes 6 subject groups with 3 core elements including Theory of Knowledge (TOK), Creativity - Activity - Community Service (CAS) and In-depth Essay (EE). . Students can choose to study in the 240-hour advanced program or the 150-hour standard program.

Courses require students to think and critically, do independent research, and undertake a project related to community service.

Especially for CAS, the goal of this certificate is to engage students in local community projects and find creative solutions to social problems that students need to experience in order to understand the values ​​of their communities. deeply valued in life and community.

Tests that measure student achievement are often designed with an extensive method of testing whether students can apply theoretical concepts in new situations.

About the SACE program, Professor Martin Westwell shared that this is a baccalaureate program that provides training in the last two years of high school in grades 11 and 12.

"Like all academic programs, SACE meets a rigorous assessment framework. But I think one of the things that sets this program apart is the flexibility to meet the standards set." Professor Martin Westwell said.

Specifically, for the SACE high school graduation certificate, 30% of a student's overall score comes from the test and some other form of assessment, 70% is summed up from the school history.

"However, we have had to put in place a really rigorous quality assurance process to support the assessment. That means that the parts of the student's test regardless of whether it's from Australia, from Vietnam, or from anywhere else in the world will still be assessed according to the same standardized process," said the CEO of the South Australian state secondary education certification system.

The process framework and evaluation criteria are very clear. For example, a test with an A grade will be checked against other exams with the same grade range A or B or C, to ensure that the test is scored correctly.
