Standards and Practices of the PYP
3 sections
7 standards
practices explain each standard
How to rate them - Best fit approach
Low – This practice is of a very poor implementation or there is no evidence it has been implemented in school yet.

Mid Low – Data collected shows this practice currently shows a basic implementation in school.

Mid High – Data shows this practice is established in school but still requires actions for it to be consolidated/fully implemented across school.

High – This practice is fully implemented in the school or widely implemented across school.
Make sure the working group gathers facts and opinions - align points of view - to help justify the reasons for the rating as it is given.
