Although this document provides an assessment overview for each subject, it is important to rely on the most current IB-published subject guides. Subject guides provide much more detail on assessment, curriculum and subject requirements and can be accessed through a link at the top of each Subject tab. A key text for reference should also be: From Principles to Practice (2014)

Defining the Key Concepts
39
See subject guides for subject-specific definitions of the Key Concepts
40
Y8T3AestheticsAesthetics deals with the characteristics, creation, meaning and perception of beauty and taste. The study of aesthetics develops skills for the critical appreciation and analysis of art, culture and nature.
41
Y9T1ChangeChange is a conversion, transformation, or movement from one form, state or value to another. Inquiry into the concept of change involves understanding and evaluating causes, processes and consequences.
42
Y9T3CommunicationCommunication is the exchange or transfer of signals, facts, ideas and symbols. It requires a sender, a message and an intended receiver. Communication involves the activity of conveying information or meaning. Effective communication requires a common 'language' (which may be written, spoken or non-verbal).
43
Y7T3CommunitiesCommunities are groups that exist in proximity defined by space, time or relationship. Communities include, for example, groups of people sharing particular characteristics, beliefs or values as well as groups of interdependent organisms living together in a specific habitat.
44
Y7T2ConnectionsConnections are links, bonds and relationships among people, objects, organisms or ideas.
45
Y8T2CreativityCreativity is the process or ability to make or produce something new and original, often characterized by the use of imagination or divergent thinking. It may be evident in the process as well as the outcome, solution or product.
46
Y7T5CultureCulture encompasses a range of learned and shared beliefs, values, interests, attitudes, products, ways of knowing and patterns of behaviour created by human communities. The concept of culture is dynamic and organic.
47
Y7T4DevelopmentDevelopment is the act or process of growth, progress or evolution, sometimes through Iterative improvements.
48
Y8T4FormForm is the shape and underlying structure of an entity or piece of work, including its organization, essential nature and external appearance.
49
Y8/Y9T1, T4Global InteractionsGlobal interaction focuses on the connections among individuals and communities, as well as their relationships with built and natural environments, from the perspective of the world as a whole.
50
Y7T1IdentityIdentity is the state or fact of being the same. It refers to the particular features which define individuals, groups, things, eras, places, symbols and styles. Identity can be observed, or it can be constructed, asserted, and shaped by external and internal influences.
51
Y8T6LogicLogic is a method of reasoning and a system of principles used to build arguments and reach conclusions.
52
Y8T5PerspectivesPerspective is the position from which we observe situations, objects, facts, ideas and opinions. Perspective may be associated with individuals, groups, cultures or disciplines. Different perspectives often lead to multiple representations and interpretations.
53
Y9T2RelationshipsRelationships are the connections and associations between properties, objects, people and ideas-including the human community's connections with the world in which we live. Any change in relationship brings consequences-some of which may occur on a small scale, while others may be far reaching, affecting large networks and systems like human societies and the planetary ecosystem.
54
Y7/Y9T6SystemsSystems are sets of interacting or interdependent components. Systems provide structure and order in human, natural and built environments. Systems can be static or dynamic, simple or complex.
55
Y9T5Time, Place & SpaceTime, place and space: The intrinsically-linked concept of time, space and place refers to the absolute or relative position of people, objects and ideas. 'Time, place and space' focuses on how we construct and use our understanding of location ("where" and "when").

57
Related Concepts
58
These are discipline-specific concepts. 2-3 should be addressed in each unit. It is up to the Subject Director to ensure sufficient horizontal and vertical coverage. More detail and support on these is provided in subject guides and teacher support material available from ASO
