Personal Project Quick Comment Spreadsheet


UPDATE 2022: Thanks to Terea Marcum for updating this for the new Guide. Please click here to see her version. Thank-you! 

Spreadsheet to help with comment generation and moderation of MYP Personal Project. It is a long job, particularly with large class sizes and teachers working across time zones. The comment bank aims to help keep comments aligned and neutral, and comments for individual students can easily be modified. See the video below for how it works.

  • It uses data validation and a comment bank for marking,
  • “Concatenate” to compile comments and feeds the data into a decision-making sheet.
  • If a student’s work is sampled, the submission comment can be derived from the comments of the two marker

EDIT – links to the old version removed. 

Video: for the older version, but you get the idea.

  7. Hi Stephen,

    Thank you for sharing this. The spreadsheet link 2022 will definitely help for the first moderation and assessment process. Do you have the report for which the new criteria were used in the 2022 spreadsheet? That would really help to see how the strands were awarded those levels.

    Thank you once again.



  8. This is now longer clickable – so can’t be downloaded
