Historiography: Theory of Knowledge (TOK) in History - Three 1-hour sessions: ActiveHistory
Theory of knowledge TOK is assessed through an oral presentation and a 1, word essay. It asks students to reflect on the nature of knowledge, and on how we know what we claim to know. Learn more about theory of knowledge. You may also be interested in the other components of the DP core: creativity, activity, service CAS and the extended essay. Our recognition resource and document library has subject briefs for the DP, looking at every subject at both standard and higher level.
To what extent would you agree? In areas of knowledge such as the arts and the sciences, do we learn more from work that follows or that breaks with accepted conventions? Our senses tell us that a table, for example, is a solid object; science tells us that the table is mostly empty space. Thus two sources of knowledge generate conflicting results.
Each of the IB subjects is graded on a 1 lowest to 7 highest scale. A mark of 4 is considered a passing grade. To determine diploma eligibility the marks in each of the six subjects are totalled. A student cannot receive a mark of less than 3 in any Higher Level course and must receive a minimum of 12 points from HL courses.
