What We Offer

Purchase this pack and Travis Dixon will read your submitted IAs and provide you with detailed feedback, explaining possible reasons why your IAs were moderated, how the students could have improved and a few tips for how to improve your future IAs.

The feedback comes in three ways:

  1. Annotations on the IAs themselves
  2. A video screencast commentary for each IA
  3. A written summary of feedback

You can order 1, 2 or 5 IAs to be submitted to us for feedback ($30, $50 or $100 respectively).

Please allow 3-5 working days for your feedback. Each IA takes about 45-60 mins to mark, including annotating, videoing and summarizing feedback.

Why We’re Offering This

Speaking from a moderator’s point of view, it is actually quite understandable why IB moderators are limited in the type and quality of the feedback they can provide. However, this doesn’t make it any less frustrating as a teacher when we see that our IA marks have been reduced and we’re none the wiser for it. This service will provide teachers with an examiner’s view of your IAs and provide some detailed feedback.

This is perfect for new teachers, or those who find it difficult to access other teachers for collaboration. Even experienced teachers who want to learn more about the new IA requirements will find this helpful.

BE QUICK – REVIEWS CLOSE AUGUST 30th

LIMITED TO THE FIRST 100 IAs ONLY.

As we are working teachers we can only offer this during our summer vacation. When school starts we’ll be too busy with our own classes to take the extensive amount of time it requires to offer this service.

Important Notes: 

  • Due to confidentiality requirements, teachers must have the student’s approval for their IAs to be submitted for review.
  • This service is only for IAs that have already been submitted to the IB. Students or teachers may not submit IAs for feedback that is additional to the teacher’s before they are submitted for the assessment because the IB allows only one round of feedback before final submission.

Disclaimer: This peer review service is offered independently of the International Baccalaureate (IB) organization. Any opinions and comments expressed as part of this service are that of the ThemEd reviewer (Travis) only and do not reflect the views and opinions of the IB.
