BioKnowledgy DP Biology - Understanding The IA Criteria And The Marking Rubric

Published in: Education
  • Hi there! Coming from the post of Emergency Responses Programme , the two and half past years, here I am in the process of becoming a ToK teacher for Lycee Enoch Olinga (a School with a programme that goes from Kindergarten to High School) candidate to IB/PD! SO I would like to ask you guys for a favor, given your wide range of experience in this WONDERFUL and AMAZING Programme where the learner profile is like a widening embrace, from local knowledge to International diverse knowledge! I would like to have some sample on ToK courses, how to start them, especially how to engage students in that epistimological subjet of ToK in his central place among the other subject groups!

  • @Jean Paul Danko Good question. The top part of the rubric is word for word exactly the same as the IBO rubric. I have simply reformatted it so the aspects talked about at each marking level are separated out. The checklists are my own creation; they are based on IBO advice, TSM, Mark Taylor's (i-biology) rubric for the old syllabus, opinions of teachers from a CAT3 workshop, and those I work with. The checklist is designed to be a tool for students during the draft phase and for teachers to help them be consistent in their approach. The checklist is not an official resource; with the new model of IA not all parts will suit all investigations. It is simply guidance to help the teacher assign the right mark for each criterion. Judgment needs to be used, as certain aspects will weigh more heavily if a student report has a key weakness or is particularly strong in one part of a criterion. Ultimately marking has to be guided by IBO criteria.

  • Dear Chris, I have a question about your rubric, which seems great and of considerable detail. Did this come out of an IB workshop? Can DP science teachers assume that this is a rubric we can all safely rely on? thank you, Jean Paul

  1. 1. Understanding the IA Criteria I’m doing an investigation for the IA … … what do I put in my report? … how is it marked? By Chris Paine https://bioknowledgy.weebly.com/
  2. 2. There is a lot of detail! … … How should I read and use the IA criteria? http://www.slideshare.net/diverzippy/bioknowledgy-dp-bio-ia-criteria-v11
  3. 3. Let’s break it down – there are 3 parts aspects checklists 3 marks 2 1
  4. 4. Let’s break it down The checklist helps you to know how well did you do against each aspect The checklist tells you what needs to be in your report* Depending on brand you attained in each aspect you will be awarded a mark for the criteria. 3 2 1 *The checklist is designed to fit a common approach. Some checks may not be valid for investigations taking an unusual approach.
  5. 5. How does the checklist equate to the aspects? x x x x x It’s likely that the top band will be awarded Most checks completed? Maybe just one minor mistake or omission? 2 1
  6. 6. How does the checklist equate to the aspects? x x x The band you are awarded depends on: • how many checks are missed • How many minor mistakes are made • How important the major mistakes are 2 Some checks completed? A few minor, or maybe a major mistake or two? 1
  7. 7. How does the checklist equate to the aspects? Attained the same band in each aspect? 2 Then you should receive the top mark in that band for the criteria 3
  8. 8. How does the checklist equate to the aspects? Attained a mixture of bands in the different aspects? 2 Then you should receive a mark that ‘best fits’ your attainment overall. 3
  9. 9. How does the checklist equate to the aspects? Attained a mixture of bands in the different aspects? 2 3 n.b. the best-fit approach means that sometimes a mark maybe adjusted up or down depending on the particular strength or weakness of a given aspect.
  10. 10. Marks for each criteria are added together 1 3 4 4 2 14 14 4 The overall total counts as 20% of your final grade
