About the workshop

This workshop is recommended for experienced theory of knowledge (TOK) teachers; Creativity, activity, service (CAS) coordinators; extended essay (EE) coordinators and supervisors and Diploma Programme (DP) coordinators and librarians.

This workshop is intended to provide you with an opportunity to explore and apply the criteria and descriptors used for assessing work in TOK, CAS and the EE. The workshop revolves around sample student work in TOK to provide you with specific examples of work and how it is assessed. Sample extended essays are also used in this way. In addition, you can discuss possible CAS activities to help clarify the criteria used to assess student growth. In all instances, the workshop involves you in assessing work rather than merely listening to presentations about rubrics. The IB learner profile and the goal of internationalmindedness will serve as the two overarching themes informing the discussion of these different assessments.
