Coordinators can use ManageBac to track EE progress in real-time across the entire year group and eliminate paperwork. Approve proposals, set deadlines and To-dos, share resources, and communicate directly with students.
Navigating the EE Worksheet

Enabling Extended Essay Worksheets
When creating a new Year Group, if the Extended Essay template is marked as "Enable Project by Default", EE will be enabled automatically.
Enabling EE Worksheets within an Existing Year Group
EE can be enabled within existing Year Groups via Year Group > Edit Year Group Settings, tick Extended Essay, Save Changes. Disabling the EE project will hide the tab from the Year Group but it will not delete the student data. To view the student data simply re-enable the project.
