The Internal Assessment Layout and Rubric
IBO Required Written Assignment Format
Should contain all of the following as I have already stated.
• Research title (question)
This must be a question that suggests how the company can CHANGE, using the business tools you are going to use. Make sure you also include a table of contents, and you can even dedicate the assignment to someone if you want!
You should include a short history of the company where its been and where its hoping to be going.
• Statement of objective(s)
Here you will be wanting to tell the examiner what business tools (what area of the business syllabs) you will be using and why you think they are most suitable for the assignment.
This is the main part of your assignment, where you discuss what you did what your findings were, and how you got your findings
• Conclusions and recommendations
Pretty obvious really, but state again what your conclusions were and how these could make the business better. It is very important to mention areas that you did not have space for in the assignment to cover.
• Bibliography and references
Make sure you quote atleast two different quotes from different sources, and use the proper IB system for quotes in the assignment, at the bottom of the page that the quote relates to.
• Appendices (if applicable)
Include these, because the examiner likes it.
Remember it is only 1500 words so, you will have to choose your words carefully, no waffle!
I ENCOURAGE YOU TO CARRY OUT SELF ANALYSIS OF THE RUBRICS CONTINUOUSLY WHILE YOU ARE DOING THE ASSIGNMENT, SO YOU CAN WORK OUT WHETHER YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT COURSE OR NOT. EACH AREA IS OUT OF 4. IF YOU MISS OUT ON ONE OR TWO POINTS IN THE RUBRIC, YOUR WHOLE GRADE WILL SLIDE DOWN A LOT, SO MAKE SURE YOU ANSWER EVERYHTING. IF YOU HAVE DOUBTS, SEE YOUR TEACHER, HE/SHE WILL HELP YOU.
HAVE YOU ANSWERED ALL THESE QUESTIONS IN THE RUBRIC?
IF SO YOU WILL GET A 20.
