The Reflections on Planning and Progress Form (RPPF).

Advice for students.

I created this document to help students fill in their Reflections on PLanning and Progress Form, working towards Criterion E “Engagement”, which is worth 6 marks.

The information in this document is a summary of chapter 7 of Hoang P. and Taylor C. 2017. Extended Essay Skills for Success. London Hodder Education.

I share, and go through, this document with students in the DP Core class and refer back to it during the key times in the process, such as when students should be having their reflection sessions with their supervisor, which are then recorded on the Reflections on Planning and Progress Form, which can be found on the International Baccalaureate’s Extended Essay website.

This document is also shared with the Extended Essay supervisors, and is useful for them as it gives example questions and topics they can discuss with their students during their reflection sessions.

This document includes:

  • Introduction.

  • The Reflections on Planning and Progress Form (RPPF).

  • The initial reflection session.

  • The Interim reflection session.

  • The final reflection session: The viva voce.

  • Do’s and don’ts.

  • Where to find assessed and blank RPPFs.
