Marking Ee In Business Management - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What should I do if there is no RPPF?

    • A.

      Contact my Team Leader

    • B.

      "Raise an exception" to let the IB know

    • C.

      Do nothing and award 0 for criterion E

    Correct Answer
    C. Do nothing and award 0 for criterion E
    Explanation
    If there is no RPPF (Reflective Project Process Form), it means that the student has not completed the required reflection on their project. Criterion E of the IB assessment requires the completion of the RPPF, so if it is missing, the student cannot be awarded any marks for this criterion. Therefore, the appropriate action in this situation would be to do nothing and award 0 for criterion E.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Should I start with the main body of the EE (and mark ABCD), or with the RPPF (and mark E)?

    • A.

      Start with the main body (and mark ABCD)

    • B.

      Start with the RPPF (and mark E)

    • C.

      Either way is possible

    Correct Answer
    C. Either way is possible
    Explanation
    The question is asking whether it is better to start with the main body of the Extended Essay (EE) or with the Reflections on Planning and Progress Form (RPPF). The correct answer is that either way is possible. This means that there is no strict rule or guideline on which part to start with first. It ultimately depends on the individual's preference and writing style. Some students may find it easier to begin with the main body and then reflect on their planning and progress, while others may prefer to start with the RPPF and use it as a guide for their main body.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What marks are most Business Management EEs likely to score for Criterion D?

    • A.

      3-4

    • B.

      2-3

    • C.

      1-2

    Correct Answer
    A. 3-4
    Explanation
    Business Management Extended Essay (EE) students are likely to score marks in the range of 3-4 for Criterion D. This criterion assesses the student's ability to critically evaluate the information collected and analyze its relevance to the research question. Scoring in this range indicates that the student has demonstrated a strong understanding of the information gathered and has provided a comprehensive analysis of its significance in relation to the research question.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What mark for Criterion A would a typical “glorified HLIA” (with primary research methodology, recommendations etc) score?

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      4

    Correct Answer
    A. 2
    Explanation
    A typical "glorified HLIA" with primary research methodology and recommendations would score a 2 on Criterion A. This suggests that while the HLIA has incorporated some elements of primary research and recommendations, it lacks depth and sophistication in its approach. It may not fully meet the criteria for higher scores such as 3 or 4, which would require more comprehensive and well-developed primary research and recommendations.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    What should I do if I suspect plagiarism?

    • A.

      Notify my Team Leader

    • B.

      Raise an exception to let the IB know and investigate

    • C.

      Do nothing as the EEs go through Turnitin, so this will be addressed elsewhere

    • D.

      Penalise under criterion D

    Correct Answer
    B. Raise an exception to let the IB know and investigate
    Explanation
    If you suspect plagiarism, the best course of action is to raise an exception to let the IB (International Baccalaureate) know and investigate. This is important because plagiarism is a serious academic offense and needs to be addressed appropriately. By raising an exception, you are ensuring that the IB is made aware of the situation and can take the necessary steps to investigate and address the issue. This helps to maintain the integrity of the assessment process and ensures that all students are treated fairly.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What should I do if the student included an abstract?

    • A.

      Penalise the student under criterion D (as the structure/layout is not appropriate, if it includes an abstract)

    • B.

      Count if the overall length includes the abstract or not (if it is does not, the EE could be over 4000 words and I would need to stop reading after 4000 words, probably missing the end of the conclusion)

    • C.

      Do nothing, as the abstract is not a requirement any more, although it can contribute to the overall quality and coherence of the EE.

    • D.

      Inform my Team Leader, as the IB wants to keep track of the number of EEs that include an abstract

    Correct Answer
    C. Do nothing, as the abstract is not a requirement any more, although it can contribute to the overall quality and coherence of the EE.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to do nothing, as the abstract is not a requirement anymore, although it can contribute to the overall quality and coherence of the Extended Essay (EE). This means that even if a student includes an abstract, it will not affect their evaluation or result in any penalty. While an abstract can enhance the EE, it is not mandatory, and the absence of an abstract will not be considered a structural or layout issue. Therefore, there is no need to penalize the student or inform the Team Leader about the inclusion of an abstract.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    In my comments on the first page, should I refer to each criterion in turn?

    • A.

      Yes, to help IB senior examiners understand the 5 marks I have awarded

    • B.

      No, a holistic comment may be enough

    • C.

      No, but I need to comment on key aspects, for example why I would award D3 (as opposed to D4)

    Correct Answer
    C. No, but I need to comment on key aspects, for example why I would award D3 (as opposed to D4)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is No, but I need to comment on key aspects, for example why I would award D3 (as opposed to D4). This answer suggests that it is not necessary to refer to each criterion individually, but it is important to comment on key aspects of the criteria to explain the marks awarded. Specifically, the answer mentions the importance of explaining why a certain mark was awarded, such as choosing D3 over D4. This shows a deeper understanding of the evaluation process and the need to provide specific justifications for the marks given.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What should I expect to award B5-B6?

    • A.

      At least 5 tools for B5 and 6 tools for B6

    • B.

      Skillful applications of the tools used (irrespective of their number)

    • C.

      Specific and relevant subject knowledge gained from secondary research

    Correct Answer
    C. Specific and relevant subject knowledge gained from secondary research
    Explanation
    The correct answer is specific and relevant subject knowledge gained from secondary research. This means that in order to award B5-B6, the individual should demonstrate a deep understanding of the subject matter through the use of secondary research. The number of tools used or the skillful application of those tools is not the main focus for this award.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    How should I deal with poor referencing?

    • A.

      Maximum D3 (as this is part of the presentation of the EE)

    • B.

      Maximum E4 (as this shows poor engagement with research and research skills)

    • C.

      I should refer to the IB if I suspect academic malpractice

    Correct Answer
    C. I should refer to the IB if I suspect academic malpractice
    Explanation
    The correct answer suggests that if the individual suspects academic malpractice, they should refer to the IB (International Baccalaureate) for further investigation. This implies that the person should report any instances of suspected academic dishonesty or misconduct to the appropriate authorities in order to maintain the integrity of the educational system.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What is the new grade boundary for A?

    • A.

      29 (as before)

    • B.

      28 (as the total has gone from 36 to 34)

    • C.

      Grade boundaries have not been set yet

    Correct Answer
    C. Grade boundaries have not been set yet
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the grade boundaries have not been set yet. This means that the criteria for achieving an A grade in this particular context have not been determined or communicated. It is possible that the grade boundaries will be set at a later time or that the grading system for this particular assessment or course does not use specific grade boundaries.
