IB Mission Statement

 

The  International  Baccalaureate  Organization  aims  to   develop   inquiring,   knowledgeable   and   caring  young  people  who  help  to create  a  better  and  more peaceful  world  through  intercultural  understanding  and respect. To    this    end    the    IBO    works    with    schools, governments   and   international organizations   to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These  programmes  encourage  students  across  the world  to  become  active, compassionate and lifelong learners  who  understand  that  other  people,  with their differences, can also be right.

 

IB learner profile

 

The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.

IB learners strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, reflective.

 

The IB Diploma Programme

 

The IB Diploma Programme (DP) was established in 1968 to provide an international education that would enable young people to better understand and manage the complexities of our world, and to provide them with the skills and attitudes to take action to improve it. Such an education was grounded in the more progressive educational thinking of the time but also in the belief that the world could be made better through an education that focused on concepts, ideas and issues that crossed disciplinary, cultural, national and geographical boundaries.

The IB Diploma Programme is a challenging two-year pre-university curriculum, primarily aimed at students aged 16 to 19. It leads to a qualification (the IB diploma) that is widely recognized by the world’s leading universities. The curriculum contains six subject groups together with the DP core: creativity, activity, service (CAS); the extended essay (EE); and theory of knowledge (TOK). 3 or 4 subjects are delivered at higher level and 3 or 2 subjects at standard level

Candidates studying for the diploma select six subjects from the subject groups. Normally three subjects are studied at higher level (courses representing 240 teaching hours), and the remaining three subjects are studied at standard level (courses representing 150 teaching hours). All three parts of the core—extended essay, theory of knowledge and creativity, activity, service—are compulsory and are central to the philosophy of the Diploma Programme.

o    The extended essay has a prescribed limit of 4,000 words. It offers the opportunity to investigate a topic of individual interest, and acquaints students with the independent research and writing skills expected at university.

o    The interdisciplinary theory of knowledge course is designed to provide coherence by exploring the nature of knowledge across disciplines, encouraging an appreciation of other perspectives.

o    Participation in the CAS programme encourages candidates to be involved in artistic pursuits, sports, and community service work. The programme fosters students’ awareness and appreciation of life beyond the academic arena.

 

Philosophy and principles of the assessment practices

The assessment system at Gimnazija Kranj is focused on the national assessment system and the IB assessment system. In both systems assessment policies represent uniqueness in the assessment philosophy and principles. Gimnazija Kranj follows the IB directions in the IB Diploma Programme in the formal assessment and implements good practices from the national programme and forms new assessment practices to fully satisfy the need of the assessment according to the IB assessment system and principles. The informal assessment simulates the formal assessment with a variety of teaching and assessment practices which enable students to prepare for the formal assessment and to meet the purpose of the IB education.

 

The IB philosophy and principles that Gimnazija Kranj is respecting and following principles which are published in the Diploma Programme assessment principles and practice:

Assessment of the DP is high-stakes, criterion-related performance assessment. It is based on the following aims, which are elaborated in the remainder of this section.

1.        DP assessment should support the curricular and philosophical goals of the programme, through the encouragement of good classroom practice and appropriate student learning.

2.        DP assessment must reflect the international-mindedness of the programme wherever possible, must avoid cultural bias, and must make appropriate allowance for students working in their second language.

3.        DP assessment pays appropriate attention to the higher-order cognitive skills (synthesis, reflection, evaluation, critical thinking) as well as the more fundamental cognitive skills (knowledge, understanding and application).

4.        Assessment for each subject includes a suitable range of tasks and instruments/components that ensure all objectives for the subject are assessed.

5.        IB students at Gimnazija Kranj were introduced to the IB learner profile. Students are aware of the importance and opportunities that follow from identifying with the IB learner profile.

6.        The desired personal characteristics of students, expressed in the IBO mission statement, fit very well with a constructivist theory of student learning, in which students actively engage in the learning process, take responsibility for their own learning, and enlarge their knowledge, understanding and skills through inquiry. Sympathy with cultural perspectives other than the students’ own is expected in the assessment requirements of a number of subjects. The more affective qualities of caring and compassion are more difficult to include in formal assessment, but nevertheless must be represented within the overall assessment system. This is largely achieved through the creativity, action, service (CAS) requirement, though there are a number of references to ethical working practices elsewhere in the assessment system.

7.        DP students at Gimnazija Kranj enter for examinations in a language that is not their best. Nearly all such cases relate to English. Sentences should be short, with simple wording and sentence structure used wherever possible. However, subject-specific terminology should not be avoided. Additionally, tolerance must be shown towards errors in spelling and grammar when marking is carried out, except in language examinations. As long as the meaning and communication are clear, no penalty should be applied and full marks should be available.

8.        Diploma Programme assessment does include a limited element of cooperative group work. In all the science courses, students participate in an interdisciplinary project, which by its nature requires group work. One of the assessment criteria applied to practical work in the sciences relates to how well a student engages in team work, and the interdisciplinary project is a suitable context in which teachers can assess this.

 

Diploma Programme Assessment Practices and Requirements

 

The IB uses both external and internal assessment in the DP. External assessment (examinations) form the basis of the assessment for most courses. This is because of their high levels of objectivity and reliability. They include: essays, structured problems, short-response questions, data-response questions, text-response questions, case-study questions, multiple-choice questions. Internal assessment (teacher assessment) is also used for most courses. This includes: oral work in languages, fieldwork in geography, laboratory work in the sciences, essays in humanistics, investigations in mathematics and artistic performances. The maximum possible diploma points total is 45 (six courses each earning seven points, plus three points for the core subjects TOK and EE). The minimum total of points to pass the diploma is 24.

 

IB grading system

The grading system is criterion-related (results are determined by performance against set standards, and not in relation to the performance of other students); validity, reliability and fairness are principles of the Diploma Programme’s assessment strategy. For each subject well-defined assessment criteria is published in subject guides and used to measure the student’s performance. The subjects are graded on the scale from 1 to 7 (1 being the lowest and 7 being the highest).

 

Slovene national grading system

Gimnazija Kranj assessment is based on two assessment criteria models. One following the IB assessment criteria with the IB grade boundaries and the other following the national assessment criteria following the national school principle and practices defined in Pravilnik o ocenjevanju znanja v srednjih šolah (Ur. L. RS, 60/2010), Šolska pravila ocenjevanja na Gimnaziji Kranj (2016) in Interni pravilnik o preverjanju in ocenjevanju ter akademski poštenosti (academic honesty) na programu mednarodne mature (IBDP) (2016). Grades are on scale from 1 to 5 (1 being the lowest and 5 the highest):

 

85% - 100%

5

70% - 84%

4

60% - 69%

3

45% - 59%

2

0 – 44%

1

 

The prevailing assessment practice follows the IB assessment guidelines and grade system. In special circumstances, when the national Slovenian grade system is applied the assessment practice follows the national assessment guidelines. This is the case when final grade reports are issued for the purpose of scholarships and when the academic success from students is brought to the attention of parents. Another circumstance occurs when teachers want to examine the knowledge of students in a particular area with psychometric testing.

 

Examination session and the award of the Diploma

The school’s main examination session is the May examination session. Retakes are possible in both the November and May examination sessions.

Mock examination is conducted two months prior to the May examination session in order to prepare students for the May examination session.

At the beginning of their Diploma Programme students receive a schedule with deadlines over two years.

According to the IB language policy the IB Diploma Programme is delivered in two languages English and Slovene. The essential terminology has to be presented and understood in Slovene as well.

 

Recording and reporting

In order to assure the authenticity of submitted works of students, students have to hand in first or second drafts of their assignment. The teachers supervise, record and report about the student progress. Students are familiar with the IB Academic Honesty policy and are advised to be systematic and consistent when recording the bibliography and references.

For the purpose of the monitoring of students’ progress the following strategies are at place:

1.        eAsistent: an integrated information system for assessment, reporting and planning

2.        Certificates in two languages (Slovene and English):

Parents’ and student’s meetings

Parents’ meetings are organized three times a year. For each meeting a theme in relation to the IBDP is chosen. Regular school office hours for parents are orginazed once a month. First parent meeting is organized for IBDP candidates and their parents at the end of Year 2 before the enrolment in the IB Diploma Programme in Year 3 and Year 4. At this meeting students and parents sign Assessment and Academic Honesty Policy at Gimnazija Kranj (Interni pravilnik o preverjanju in ocenjevanju ter akademski poštenosti na programu mednarodna matura na Gimnaziji Kranj) for the following two years.

 

Students’ meeting and the role of a class teacher

Every class has a class teacher (razrednik) who’s role is to support students in their academic and personal development. The class teacher manages the eAsistent assessment, planning and reporting with the IBDP coordinator. The class teachers organizes regular weekly meetings with students (class hours, razredna ura). Class hours are scheduled every Wednesday after the lessons. During the class hours meetings with the IBDP coordinator, school counsellor and external visitors are organized.

 

Academic Honesty

Doing homework is an important activity which supports students to be independent and responsible. Students have to follow the IB assessment principles and guidelines in Academic Honesty. Supervision of homework that serves as an activity and assignment for assessment components in internal or external assessment is essential and is at the attention of teachers. Teachers understand their role as supervisors. Students have to hand in first and second drafts prior to the final draft being submitted. By following this procedure malpractice and plagiarism can be avoided.

 

Retake and enquiry upon results

Students have several meetings regarding the retake and enquiry upon results in Year 4. A document Retake and Enquiry Upon Results for students was written for this purpose.

 

Studying in Slovenia and abroad

o    Students and parents have two meetings with the IBDP coordinator to be informed about the studying possibilities in Slovenia and abroad.

o    The school counsellor has additional meetings with students to deliver information about the Slovene university programmes.

o    Gimnazija Kranj organizes meetings and workshops with representatives from Slovene and foreign universities.

o    Once a year students attend a workshop organized by the Public Institution for scholarship of Republic of Slovenia (Javni zavod za štipendiranje Republike Slovenije) at Gimnazija Kranj in order to obtain information about scholarship programmes for studying in Slovenia and abroad.

o    Students have personal statement workshops to improve their writing skills organized by the IB Diploma Programme coordinator.

Dijak mora obvezno na višji ravni vzeti slovenščino. Dijaku se v slovensko maturo obvezno pretvorijo slovenščina, matematika in angleščina ter še dva predmeta po izbiri. En predmet se ne upošteva, saj je na slovenski maturi le 5 predmetov. Med petimi predmeti morajo trije biti na višji ravni. Dijaku ni treba na višji ravni vzeti matematike ali angleščine. Poleg slovenščine, ki je obvezno na višji ravni, se dijaku z dodatnimi točkami štejeta še dva predmeta na višji ravni, katera dva predmeta, je odvisno od tega, kaj dijak potrebuje za vpis na slovensko ali tujo univerzo. Če dijak vzame slovenščino, angleščino in matematiko na višji ravni, se mu štejejo kot obvezni predmeti za slovensko maturo in se prištejejo točke (največ + 3) ne glede na to, katere druge predmete ima na višji ravni. Zlati maturant je dijak lahko le v primeru, če doseže najmanj 40 točk na mednarodni maturi. Pretvorba v slovensko maturo ne šteje. Če dijak ni opravil mature, je pretvorba brezpredmetna. Uspeh na maturi je edini relevanten za vpis na univerze.
