EAC Learning Results

Each year, EAC students take part in a wide range of external, standardized assessments that help document student growth as well as allow for student achievement to be measured in comparison to local, national and international standards.

The pandemic’s impact during the 2021-2022 school year was wide-ranging, across all areas of school operations. Fortunately, students at EAC were able to take part in several standardized assessments, in the areas of:

  • IB Diploma (Grade 12)
  • Measures of Academic Progress (Grades 6-9)
  • SAT (Grade 11-12)

As well, students from the Class of 2022 continued to matriculate in top universities around the world.

International Baccalaureate Diploma Results

EAC offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, a very rigorous two-year university preparatory program of studies, culminating in external examination and moderation. We offer an inclusive “IB for All” program and encourage all our students to pursue the diploma. The diploma is awarded to students who gain at least 24 points, subject to minimum levels of achievement across the whole program and satisfactory engagement in the core of the Diploma; Creativity, Action and Service (CAS), Theory of Knowledge (ToK) and the Extended Essay (EE). The highest total that a Diploma Program student can reach is 45 points. The IB Diploma is a qualification recognized and respected by the world’s leading universities.

We are especially proud of our results and know that they could not have been achieved without the dedication of the teachers who guided the students through the Diploma.

Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) Results

EAC administers the MAP Assessment 3 times per year (September, February, and May) to students in Grades 1-5 and 1 time a year in May to students in grades 6-9. This assessment was developed by the Northwest Evaluation Association and is used extensively in the United States as well as by many international schools. Over one million students took the MAP test outside of the United States during the 2021-2022 school year.

The MAP Assessments are computer adaptive achievement tests in Mathematics Reading, and Language Usage. The computer software adjusts the difficulty of the questions so that each student takes a unique test. The difficulty of each question is based on how well the student has answered previous questions.

The MAP test measures the following strands that are aligned to US educational standards and are addressed in EAC’s Math and English language arts curricula.


  • Computation
  • Number Sense
  • Algebraic Methods
  • Data Analysis & Probability
  • Geometric Concepts
  • Measurement
  • Problem Solving


  • Literature
  • Information Text
  • Foundational Skills / Vocabulary


  • Planning / Organization / Research
  • Understanding Grammar / Usage
  • Punctuation & Spelling

MAP is a norm-referenced measure of student growth over time. MAP assessments, joined with other data points, provide detailed, actionable data about where each child is on his or her unique learning path. MAP assessments track student performance and progress throughout a year and across school years, and by being linked to software tools whic can assist teachers and administrators in planning instruction.

MAP tests are based on a continuum of skills in Mathematics and Reading from low skill levels to high skill levels. MAP assessments help teachers identify the instructional level of the student and also provide context for determining where each student is performing in relation to local or state standards and national norms. MAP reports allow teachers to better target instruction based on students’ strengths and needs.


MAP tests were administered At EAC at the end of the 2021-2022 school year. Below you will find a comparison between our performances and US norm (public and private schools in the US), international (international schools all over the world) and AMISA schools (international schools in South America, sub group we belong to).

We tested students from 1st to 9th grades. In Science, we only test 8th-graders and the content covers the entire middle school curriculum.

SAT Results 2022-2023

The SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a traditional college/university admission test used as a part of the application process for colleges in the US, mostly. Universities in Korea, and a select few in Brazil and Europe may also use it as part of their application process to supplement academic information. That said, we have seen a shift in the general need for any standardized testing since most universities became “test blind”, “test optional” or “test flexible” in 2020. These policies meant that students could choose not to submit scores or to use alternate test scores, such as the IB, to fulfill a testing requirement. We have seen the reflection of this change in policy over the last few years:

  • 70% of the Class of 2021 took the SAT and only 17% submitted their scores to universities.
  • 67% of the Class of 2022 took the SAT and only 14% submitted their scores to universities.

Because of this shift, the counselors at EAC have been working closely with students and families to decide when and if SAT/ACT testing should be part of each individual students’ college planning. We have also moved away from including average scores in the EAC School Profile provided to universities to contextualize applications.
