Hi, It says 4000 characters for the teacher's comment....is this correct or is it 400? Just double checking as it seems a lot and the example was more like 400. Thanks for the clarification.

Heather McReynolds 1 March 2018 - 19:59

that sounds like way too much... Id go for 400 or therabouts

I have a student who chose to put her exhibition in the girls bathroom. It is a powerful show, but there is no way to capture it in two photos because there are things behind the doors of the stalls and the room turns. Can we use the "additional two" per work to try to place them within the show?

Heather McReynolds 12 March 2018 - 20:05

definitely... those extra two photos per art work can be used to show the installation / site specific aspect of work... sounds interesting, share after exams?

Judi Morgan 13 March 2018 - 16:58

Excellent. and yes, it was amazing. Would be happy to share!

Hi Hethear,
(be sure you have the students e-portfolios documenting the exhibitions on file so you can easily submit them when asked. ( and this can happen),Does this mean to the pages documenting the process of the exhibition work in the students journal?

Heather McReynolds 14 March 2018 - 09:02

Heba, this means have all students ( not just the ones chosen by the automatic sample) exhibition portfolios with texts on file, ready to upload should further samples be requested.

Dale Meier 23 March 2018 - 08:58

Hi Heather. For the exhibition photographs, my understanding is that each photo has the exhibition text under it. Can this be sent in one PDF file with all of the photos and texts under each photo? I am confused because it says file type should be a jpg or TIF.

Heather McReynolds 26 March 2018 - 09:42

File type is for the image of the artwork ( usually a jpeg), then there will be a slot for text next to each image, so no you cant send a pdf with all the info, you must enter text with each uploaded image

Becky van Paassen 23 March 2018 - 08:59

Hi Heather,
Is it ok to photograph work outside of the exhibition? Some of the works are framed so have a lot of reflection. Thanks

Heather McReynolds 26 March 2018 - 09:40

Hi Becky!! yes of course, for the individual pieces, only the overview photos need be of the exhibition

Dale Meier 23 March 2018 - 09:00

The above comment is for the additional supporting photographs. My students would like to have one photo of each work with the exhibition text below that supports the work.

Heather McReynolds 26 March 2018 - 09:42

yes the additional supporting photos do not have extra text as they are supporting the main image only

Dian Ritter 23 March 2018 - 10:14

Hi Heather,
Where do we submit the 6/VACAF forms for our moderation sample of students? I did already submit each of the justifications for my 7 sample students, but do not see where to submit the 'new' authentication form. Are we still using that? Thanks! Dian

Heather McReynolds 26 March 2018 - 09:39

still using 6VACAF yes, ask your DP coordinator if you are having trouble finding this on IBIS

Tim Danby 26 March 2018 - 10:04

Hi there Heather,
We have four candidates for HL this year and currently there only seems to be options for uploading the CS and PP, nothing for any candidate for Exhibition. Has this perhaps not opened yet on the IBO site?

Heather McReynolds 26 March 2018 - 10:08

Hi Tim, you need to first submit your IA marks ( internal assessment) for all students for the exhibition component- only then IBIS will select a sample and you will upload those students full portfolios ( studio pieces, texts, overview photos, rationale). Hope this clarifies?

Tim Danby 26 March 2018 - 10:13

Ah of course,
Thanks a mil for the prompt response! This chat is absolutely invaluable. most of the time a quick scroll up and down solves any issues. much appreciated!

Laura Sutherland 28 March 2018 - 15:06

Hi Heather,
two questions that you can maybe help with. What do you think about us submitting a panorama photograph as one of the exhibition images? we are having trouble documenting the exhibition as a number of installations go around corners, through corridors and into 2nd spaces. and second question, is it ok to submit a short video clip to document one of the pieces, its an archive type piece, object placed on a really long table?
I'd appreciate your opinion, Thanks for now,
Best Wishes

Heather McReynolds 28 March 2018 - 17:21

Hi Laura, yes I can answer your questions: you can use a panorama photo for the exhibition overview ,) and video documentation for studio pieces is allowed ( not for exhibition overview) see chart at the top of this page for acceptable file types and sizes. Good luck!

Laura Sutherland 28 March 2018 - 21:42

Thanks Heather, for your swift reply. And your news is good!
Best Wishes

Heba Yosri 2 April 2018 - 09:51

Hi Heather,
Please clear this point, how is the exhibition text (file types) :Image: JPG, TIF
Video: F4V, M4V, MOV, MP4 5 MB
5 minutes/500 MB.??
Isn't it a text and should be as the rationale?

Heather McReynolds 3 April 2018 - 20:02

those file types are for the artworks, the text can be simply pasted form a word doc into the appropriate text slots

Jonathan Tite 5 April 2018 - 07:35

Hi Heather, just to let you know that you only have JPG and TIF as file types for exhibition and artwork photos whereas on IBIS (I am uploading now) state this: Image files (JPEG, JPG, PNG; 5 MB max). You may want to update this as I had a student submit their pictures in PNG (common for macbooks) last week and after looking at this page I made them convert them all to JPG, rather unnecessarily it now seems. All the best, Jonathan

Heather McReynolds 5 April 2018 - 18:36

Hi Jonathan, that was in reference to the 2 EXhibtion overview photos, as you can see in the above chart the artworks have a longer list of acceptable files. Were you able to upload PNGs successfully? I have added PNG to the list, this is a new addition to accepted file types in 2018. Thanks. Sorry if this caused you more work.

Christine Pritchard 6 April 2018 - 08:48

Good morning!
A question it says on here that my IA marks need to be submitted by the 10th? My IB co ordinator thinks all are in for the 20th, what am I getting wrong here?

Thank you in advance

Heather McReynolds 6 April 2018 - 09:46

only your IA marks by 10th so IBIS can select the sample... then you upload those candidates exhibition work by the 20th. Its a process!!

Amelia Milne 9 April 2018 - 03:18

But it clearly states on IBIS that the due date for IA marks os 20th of April.

Heather McReynolds 9 April 2018 - 20:10

where do you see this Amelia?
10th for IA
20th for all exhib materiaa
30th for Cs & PP

Amelia Milne 10 April 2018 - 06:19

Hi Heather! Sorry that came off a bit abrupt, a bit of a fluster as it's my first time. I don't seem able to submit a screenshot to you but when I log in to IBIS I see the comment in the Information section at the top: The deadline for entering IA marks is: 20 April 2018 23:59:00 GMT. Is it just that you recommend us to submit earlier to allow time for them to generate the sample? In my case I know it will be my whole class (just 4) so I have prepared all of the materials. We have an issue with one student who has been absent a lot and is a bit late finishing, hence wanting to give a few more days if possible. I feel a bit worried about this though because I really trust your judgment!!

Heather McReynolds 10 April 2018 - 18:27

Amelia, can you enter the rest of the students IA and wait on the one? As far as I know the IA is april 10 and the upload the 20th

Christine Pritchard 6 April 2018 - 19:29

So if I am still awaiting my IBIS login and my co'ordinator is on holiday. I have been told they will want all of them due to our numbers. Any thoughts what I should do? And, sorry, to be clear, the IA marks are my break down numbers from my marking of the 8 (in my case?) - apologies if there are obvious questions here!

Heather McReynolds 6 April 2018 - 19:49

Christine, if your class is smallish, your sample will be all your students. The IA marks are your mark out of 30 for the exhibition component, for all students. Then the sample ( in this case all students) will require the breakdown marks for each criteria. Hope its clear enough ;)

Doug Lewis 10 April 2018 - 07:14

Can students submit more than 1 video?

Heather McReynolds 10 April 2018 - 18:21

Doug, sure they can submit more than 1

phil Gunderson 17 April 2018 - 20:24

Hi Heather, just about to send this off. I have a student video installation. I have filmed the exhibition, but can I submit the original video film piece and should I submit my film of the film as supporting? Obviously the original is best and I would rather submit a supporting photograph of this.

Heather McReynolds 20 April 2018 - 10:06

Phil, so sorry i didnt see this comment until now! probably too late to be helpful but . Submit the original by all means!I would also include a still photo documenting the whole installation as supporting photo...

Sharon Moore 18 April 2018 - 16:32

Hi can any one help me I am looking at the exhibition screen on the students dash board There is no uploads for any of the Art work text example the size of each piece material and explanation.

Heather McReynolds 20 April 2018 - 09:48

Hi Sharon, have you submitted your IA marks first? then you should see the upload screen with text and image slots

Heba Yosri 19 April 2018 - 09:07

Hi Heather,
For the IA requirements, there is a part which is not clear ( supporting photos-22 files, 2 for each piece of art) (optional) i don't understand which photos should I submit in this part specially that i added the two supporting photos for two art pieces.

Heather McReynolds 20 April 2018 - 09:47

Heba, the additional 2 supporting photos per piece are optional. required are the image files for each of the studio pieces submitted.
