Setting EE & ToK Deadlines and Linking To-Dos

You can create deadlines and To-dos for the Extended Essay or Theory of Knowledge in ManageBac.

Via the ToK, EE, or Calendar Tabs

You can create deadlines by clicking Add a New Deadline under the ToK, EE, or Calendar tabs.

Here you must enter basic details (name, date, & time) and link the deadline to either your Extended Essay or your ToK Paper.

Enable Dropbox to allow students to submit their documents through ManageBac. If you Enable TurnItIn, submitted coursework will be filtered through TurnItIn automatically. You can find further information on reviewing TurnItIn originality reports in the following tutorial:

Reviewing TurnItIn Originality Reports for EE & TOK

If you choose to Attach Files, they will be available when the student's access the deadline.

Once you have clicked Add Deadline, the deadline will appear on the calendar.

You will need to add at least one To-Do item to ensure the deadline will appear on the student worksheet. You can assign To-Dos to students, advisors, or everyone. If you assign a To-Do to students only, supervisors will not be able to check them off (and vice-versa for students).

Deadlines will appear on the student EE or ToK worksheet. To-Do items can also be reviewed and added via the worksheets.

You can also review the status of your students from the EE or ToK tab. The default view displays a list of the students assigned by supervisor or ToK teacher with key information such as their subjects, research questions, prescribed titles and status (Needs Approval, Approved and Complete).

To view progress against a specific deadline, you can switch to the Deadlines view. This will allow you to see where each of your students stand relative to the global deadlines that have been set (e.g. submitting an outline, meeting with supervisors, etc.).
