Between the Interim Reflection and the completion of the extended essay, students should continue to see their supervisor as appropriate.
The interim, or second, reflection session takes place before the first full draft is completed, but after a substantial amount of work has been done. The first step is a mandatory interview between the student and the supervisor. The questions asked during this session tend to be more analytical, with a discussion of the strengths and limitations of initial findings and research methods. This interview informs the second written reflection.
INTERVIEW SESSION (20–30 minutes)
During this interview session supervisors might ask:
INTERIM REFLECTION (max. ~150 words)
When writing the final reflection, students might reflect about any of the above questions that were discussed.
