How to Earn College Credit and Get the IB Diploma

  • worth 24 college credits in Colorado!
     
    Each course has a variety of "Internal Assessments" or IA's and are completed in the course.  Teachers determine the deadlines for their particular IAs, and the work and scores are sent to IB.  IAs may be portfolios, oral examines, presentations, labs, or papers. 
     
    At the end of the year, students take their External Exams in late April throughout May.  These exams take place off campus is a controlled, safe environment with appropriate testing conditions for student success.  These tests are assessed not by the students' teachers, but by IB Examiners from around the world!
     
    After all IAs and External Exams have been submitted to IB, all of the student's work is assessed to determine their overall score for each IB course.
    1. Holistically, each course designates a score of 1-7.
    2. In order to receive college credit, you must score at least a 4 out of 7 points in the course.
    3. In order to receive the IB Diploma, you must score 24 out of 45 points in total, generally: 4 points in each subject times 6 subjects.  
    4. But,  there is a little bit of wiggle room to earn the Diploma--you can earn a 3 in one subject as long as you earn a 5 or higher in another subject.
    5. Each class students can receive up to 7 points. 7 x 6 classes = 42 + up to 3 points for TOK and EE
