Earlier today the IB shared additional information with schools explaining how the May 2020 session will be awarded for DP, CP and Courses students. If you have not had a chance to review this information, you can do so here.

Firstly, Kognity would like to acknowledge the incredible achievement of the IB in providing a solution that will award grades fair to the student but also trusted by Universities globally.

Kognity was founded by IB alumni, and built to be the go-to learning resource for IB schools, so we really feel the impact that the decision to cancel examinations is having on students worldwide.  COVID-19 has called on schools and organisations to quickly change processes and resources to be able to support our learning community. We hope that Kognity has been an integral and sustainable tool for schools during these unprecedented times. The feedback I have seen from students and teachers in these challenging times has been overwhelmingly positive.

In the coming weeks, we intend to offer additional support to schools focused on Internal Assessments and predicted grades. We will also be reaching out to ask how we can improve our product and services.
