The Internal Assessment
How to write a brilliant IA.
What is an IA? An internal Assessment in Economics is a written commentary based on an economics article that you have chosen.  The article you choose should allow you to explain and analyze economic events. ,[object Object]
For Economics HL, your IA represents 20% of your total IB score.,[object Object]
Where can I find an article? You might browse the New York Times International Edition in the school’s library. You can use any article you find anywhere, as long as you have a hard copy to hand in. You can show me your article so that can let you know if it is appropriate.
Example article
As your IA’s are a part of your formal assessment, teachers are not allowed to provide as much assistance with IA’s as we might like to.
Teacher Feedback “Written feedback should generally be limited to reflecting on and explaining the instructions in the syllabus --define, label, explain, etc.  Tell students what doesn't make sense, etc.  Do not give detailed instructions to students about how to improve their IA. But you may ask them, for example, to explain what this paragraph was intended to mean, if a paragraph does not make sense. You may also mention, for example, ‘background theory notes needed here!“’
Then What? Once you have picked an article, you need to analyze it. If your article is about a change in the price of a commodity, ask yourself: ,[object Object]
	Can I use a supply and demand diagram to 	explain what happened?
	By how much did quantity change?
	Who was affected by price change?,[object Object]
	Explain economic theory
	Use and explain graphs
   Evaluate (more to come on this),[object Object]
Your articles have to be recent.  It should be no older than 6 months from the start of the course.
How else I can Help I cannot choose an article for you, but for your first IA, you could show me the article and I will tell you whether it is appropriate or not. You will get feedback on the first version and will be allowed to make changes once. The second version you submit will be your final version.  Your IB Score will be based on this version.
The assessors appreciate variety. With each article you choose: Cover a different part of the world (i.e. Not only the US and the UK),  And Use a different source
Assessment There are 5 IB Criteria on which your commentary will be assessed: A: word limit+ IAs cover more than 3 sections of syllabus. 								[2 marks] B: 4 different sources + appropriate use of diagrams.									[4 marks]  C: Economic terms are used and are defined correctly.									[5 marks] D: Theory explained and applied			[5 marks] E: Evaluation 					[4 marks]
The first three criteria of your portfolio should be no problem for you.  Mistakes are possible here, but if you are careful A, B and C should be fine.
What separates the top students is the analysis and evaluation they show in D and E.  Applicationof theory Analysis of the article Evaluationof concepts involved
Expert Analysis
Homer Simpson on Evaluation Copy and paste this:  http://fliiby.com/file/132144/ay0fjcdh9o.html  Shopkeeper: [Homer has agreed to purchase a Krusty doll for Bart's birthday] Take this object, but beware it carries a terrible curse! Homer: Ooh, that's bad. Shopkeeper: But it comes with a free frogurt! Homer: That's good. Shopkeeper: The frogurt is also cursed. Homer: That's bad. Shopkeeper: But you get your choice of toppings. Homer: That's good! Shopkeeper: The toppings contain potassium benzoate. [Homer looks puzzled] Shopkeeper: ...That's bad. We start with Homer's simplistic evaluation and then use it as a base for a more detailed evaluation that includes specific details as to why it's good or bad. Don’t be a being passive receptacle of information; rather, passing judgment on what they are learning simply doesn't occur to them.
IA’s are your chance to show that you have a clear grasp on economic theory.  Economists structure their thinking, so you should as well. Apply the theories in a structured, considerate narrative.
Hierarchy of Skills
What is Evaluation?
EVALUATION 1. Short term versus long term implications 2. Effects on different stakeholders 3. Prioritise the arguments 4. Question validity of a theory/data presented
5.Can you detect contradictions/limitations between economic theory and the real world problem at hand. 6. Are there winners and losers 7. Is there any bias in the way the article was   written 8. Can you predict what will happen in the future based on what happened in this article?
Short Term Versus Long Term Examples: “in the short run, abnormal profits can be earned. however, in the long run this is not possible.” or “in the short run, it is possible to justify the infant industry argument. however, in the long run, the industry could be inefficient.
The Validity of Assumptions Most economic theory is based on assumptions.  Identify the assumptions in the article and question their validity. For example: “The assumption of perfect competition that there is perfect knowledge. This is unrealistic in globalised markets dominated by advertising.” “The theory of comparative advantage fails to take transport costs into account (from the producing country to the country buying the good). this is clearly a weakness of the theory.”
Stakeholders Consider the issue from the points of view of different stakeholders: Examples Domestic producers Consumers Government Foreign producers High income people Low income people

  • 24. Homer Simpson on Evaluation Copy and paste this: http://fliiby.com/file/132144/ay0fjcdh9o.html Shopkeeper: [Homer has agreed to purchase a Krusty doll for Bart's birthday] Take this object, but beware it carries a terrible curse! Homer: Ooh, that's bad. Shopkeeper: But it comes with a free frogurt! Homer: That's good. Shopkeeper: The frogurt is also cursed. Homer: That's bad. Shopkeeper: But you get your choice of toppings. Homer: That's good! Shopkeeper: The toppings contain potassium benzoate. [Homer looks puzzled] Shopkeeper: ...That's bad. We start with Homer's simplistic evaluation and then use it as a base for a more detailed evaluation that includes specific details as to why it's good or bad. Don’t be a being passive receptacle of information; rather, passing judgment on what they are learning simply doesn't occur to them.

  • 31. The Validity of Assumptions Most economic theory is based on assumptions. Identify the assumptions in the article and question their validity. For example: “The assumption of perfect competition that there is perfect knowledge. This is unrealistic in globalised markets dominated by advertising.” “The theory of comparative advantage fails to take transport costs into account (from the producing country to the country buying the good). this is clearly a weakness of the theory.”
  • 32. Stakeholders Consider the issue from the points of view of different stakeholders: Examples Domestic producers Consumers Government Foreign producers High income people Low income people
  • 33. Prioritise the Arguments For example, you might structure your reasoning like this: The most important argument against protectionism is…. The least effective argument forprotectionism is…. On balance, the strongest argument in favour is…
  • 34. Good answers make connections between topics Be aware that economic events never occur in isolation Question the reliability of any subjective (normative) statement. Consider short and long-term consequences
  • 35. Drop the “ceteris-paribus” assumption and see where it takes you. Challenge views and statements.
