Digital Upload Success

Hi Greg and Cy (and others), Thanks for the comments and suggestions regarding recording the interview, handbrake, iMove/Quicktime etc - I have just finished uploading and submitting all files for my final year art class and didn’t need to compress the videos. I have also just posted this (below) on the OCC. I don’t want to underestimate the stress involved with the various changes to the visual arts assessment process, including the fact that teachers are now responsible for interviewing their students ...

IBTV? video of the upload process

A recent exchange with Greg (see the comments following my last blog) has inspired me to give a bit of publicity to a related online resource - a small video of the digital upload process which appears as part of the 2012 IB Conference if the Americas There is a visual arts upload demonstration. There seems to be no sound, and it’s fairly low-res, but it might be helpful for those still struggling to anticipate the problems and issues that might occur ...

THE VISUAL ARTS COURSE UPLOAD SCREEN (IBIS)

The visual arts digital upload is now open (Monday 25 February 2013) It seems fairly straightforward, but here is a step by step overview Go to IBIS! check that you have the correct session  (May 2013) click on the E-coursework tabs (there are two, one after the other) This opens up five drop down menus: Subject, Subject option, Level, Language and Component Then hit the “search coursework” (this will not open until you have completed the five drop down menus) The ...

Monday February 25th

a)      Two weeks to go. Another IBDP visual arts date for your diary: in two weeks (Monday February 25th) for teachers and DP coordinators the IBIS upload doors will (should) open. This will give you the opportunity to see the interface and to start uploading some of your students’ studio work and/or investigation pages. The final electronic submission deadline for all files will still be April 10th.   b)      The candidate upload. Inevitably the whole upload/submission process is going to be quite time-consuming, particularly for ...

Visual Arts Grade Award June 2012, part 2 – the Pilot e-submission

Last week I posted about the visual arts grade award meeting that occurred at the end of June. Of course, many things were discussed, but one item in particular received a lot of attention: the pilot form of  the change of the CRB, from  a paper booklet that was sent to the examiner (and a duplicate sent to the IA moderator) into a digital upload. At the Grade Award meeting, this change to electronic submission primarily meant that senior examiners had less ...

It’s assessment, Jim – but not as we know it (part 2)

Last post I referred to the upcoming changes to visual arts assessment as 'peripheral', but of course it’s less peripheral when you take into account the fact that the actual studio work and the actual investigation workbook pages will no longer be seen by an examiner. Teachers have complained about the ‘old’ paper CRB for many years, and have asked (also for many years) for a ‘new’ digital upload – a 21st century option rather than a 20th century one. So ...
