Academic results

The CIS vision and mission clearly articulate our goal of being an institution that offers an extraordinary and well-rounded educational programme. A rigorous curriculum and a wide breadth of learning opportunities facilitate exceptional achievements, allowing each student to reach their full potential.

We track our students’ progress with a range of different assessments. MAP reading and mathematic assessments are administered in Grades 3 through to 10 while students enrolled in our bilingual English-Chinese programme together with those studying Chinese language acquisition in Grades 2, 4 and 6, sit the Youth Chinese Test. The rigorous International Baccalaureate Diploma is taken by students in Grade 12.

MAP results

2015/2016 Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) results

CIS uses Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), developed by Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA), as an externally referenced assessment tool to benchmark learning growth. MAP provides comprehensive data on student achievement and growth, over time, in Reading and Mathematics. Achievement in MAP is indicated by a RIT score, and it is expected that RIT scores will increase over time.


This table outlines CIS' May 2016 MAP maths results compared to the NWEA norm.

Data used is Fall 2015/16 and Spring 2014/15 (data from 2 different school years). MAP is developed by the Northwest Evaluation Association.

Youth Chinese Test (YCT) 2016 results

In May 2016, approximately 700 CIS Primary students joined students from eight other international schools, and two local schools, to sit the Youth Chinese Test (YCT).

The CIS contingent included Grades 2, 4 and 6 Chinese language acquisition students, and all Grades 1 to 4 bilingual students. CIS students did remarkably well, and results clearly indicate the quality of the CIS Chinese programme.
