E Submission Guidelines
- Getting things in perspective
- 2018 submission deadlines
- Extra Moderation Samples
- Teacher Comments
- Marking the Exhibition as a digital document
The guidelines for electronic submission of student work are detailed below. Any further changes for 2018 will be updated here as they are published.
An overview of what you need to know:
|Submit your predicted grades via coordinator||SL/HL||IBIS||10 April/10 October|
Submit electronically the uploaded materials for the internally assessed component ( i.e upload your samples)
|SL/HL||IBIS||20 April/20 October||IBIS: eCoursework|
|Submit electronically the uploaded materials for the externally assessed components.||SL/HL||IBIS||30 April/30 October||IBIS: eCoursework|
- Submit predicted grades on the predicted grade screen (via your coordinator.)
- For predicted grades refer to the Group 6 Grade Descriptors (1-7 marks) Remember that Grade Boundaries for each component at standard and higher level will be set during the May 2018 grade award. You can see an example of past Grade Boundaries
- IA: Enter the candidate’s total mark for the Exhibition Assessment out of 30, on the IA marks screen. ( Exhibition points add up to a max of 30 points). Refer to the assessment criteria descriptors when writing your justification for the marks.
- To select a sample of your students work for moderation, choose the "Select the sample" option and IBIS will generate the sample request. If you only have 5 students they will all be selected. The sample will be viewed by a moderator who will decide if your IA marks are "within tolerance".
- In the case of the internally assessed component, the teacher’s validation of the work applies to the work of all students and not just to the sample work submitted.
In the case that further moderation samples are requested, be sure you have the students e-portfolios documenting the exhibitions on file so you can easily submit them when asked.
Tips: Comments can be very helpful to the examiner and you should use this opportunity to enlighten, but try to keep your comments relevant to the criteria, and do not simply cut and paste the criteria!
You will need to select and submit IA samples on IBIS BEFORE you can upload any IA work to the eCoursework screens, so make sure you do that first!
For what concerns anonymising the work, the IB is asking not to include details such as the candidate name and school name on the actual work. The system links the candidate’s work to his/her name, but examiners do not see this. There will be no penalty applied if the details are shown, but the IB aims at avoiding bias as much as possible.
As communicated to schools on IBIS, teachers can use the candidate and school details in the file name should they wish to identify each file: this file name will not be shown on the e-marking platform.
