The Research Process OF the EXTENDED ESSAY and EE IN WORLD STUDIES
EE in WORLD STUDIES INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDY/ RESEARCH GLOBAL SIGNIFICANCE GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS QUESTION: HOW THE LOCAL CASES UNDER STUDY ILLUSTRATE LARGER PROCESS OR ISSUES OF GLOBAL IMPORTANCE
HOW THIS IS DONE? One main mentor One subject expert (from or outside school) Different assessment criteria
Assessment criteria: A: RQ: issue of contemporary global relevance; interdisciplinary essay E: Reasoned Argument: different subjects shoudl be coherently brought together K: Holistic Judgement: global consciousness
When researching the EE, students should: Choose the approved Diploma Programme subject for the extended essay. Read the assessment criteria and the relevant subject guidance. Choose a topic. Formulate a well-focused research question.
When researching the EE, students should: Plan the investigation and writing process. · Identify how and where they will gather material. · Identify which system of academic referencing they will use, appropriate to the subject of the essay. Set deadlines for themselves that will allow them to meet the school’s requirements.
Plan a structure (outline headings) for the essay. This may change as the investigation develops but it is useful to have a sense of direction. Undertake some preparatory reading. If students discover that it will not be possible to obtain the evidence needed in the time available, the research question should be changed. This should be done sooner rather than later: students should not lose time waiting and hoping that something will turn up. When researching the EE, students should:
ASSESSMENT CRITERIA A: Research Question (0-2) This criterion assesses the extent to which the purpose of the essay is specified. In many subjects, the aim of the essay will normally be expressed as a question and, therefore, this criterion is called the “research question”.
ASSESSMENT CRITERIA B: Introduction (0-2) This criterion assesses the extent to which the introduction makes clear how the research question relates to existing knowledge on the topic and explains how the topic chosen is significant and worthy of investigation.
ASSESSMENT CRITERIA C: Investigation (0-4) This criterion assesses the extent to which the investigation is planned and an appropriate range of sources has been consulted, or data has been gathered, that is relevant to the research question.
OTHER CRITERIA D: Knowledge and understanding of the topic studied (0-4) E: Reasoned argument (0-4) F: Application of the analytical and evaluative skills (0-4) G: Use of language (0-4) H: Conclusion (0-2) I: Formal presentation (0-4) J: Abstract (0-2) K: Holistic Judgement (0-4)
Academic honesty Both plagiarism and collusion are forms of malpractice that incur a penalty. The same piece of work, or two versions of the same work, cannot be submitted to meet the requirements of both the extended essay and another assessment component of a subject contributing to the diploma or an additional certificate.
Academic honesty The student is ultimately responsible for ensuring that his or her extended essay is authentic, with the work or ideas of others fully and correctly acknowledged. Additionally, it is the responsibility of a supervisor to confirm that, for each student he or she has supervised, to the best of his or her knowledge, the version of the extended essay submitted for assessment is the authentic work of the student.
