Difference between internal and external Assessment

Hi Gibbon-Community,

Gibbon works pretty good so far. There are just a few things i need to clarify.
What is the difference between internal and external Assessment?


Hi ub123,

An external assessment is something standardized, generally created by an external organization or company, such as the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP), General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE), Cognitive Assessment Test, Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test.

An internal assessment is something that is created and administered inside the school, but it can also be used for IB assessments such as predicted grades. For the most part, the setup of both of these types of assessment are controlled by an admin.

The markbook on the other hand is for teachers to enter any kind of course-related assessment, and is setup and managed by the teacher.

Hello Sandra,

Thanks for the quick reply! Short and revealing! :slight_smile:
