Notes on the extended essay

This week I had a couple of students approach me about being their extended essay supervisor. I always enjoy the process of exploringa topic and why they have chosen it. However, three different students all indicated they are interested in conducting original research. The subject guide to IB Psychology still states that conducting research is to be discouraged. Something in the back of my mind niggled at me. Aside from the fact that students would not be sufficiently prepared to conduct research, I thought IB actually prohibtted it. So I checked with another examine, who checked with the subject manager: Research is NOT to be conducted. In fact, students will be penalized.

So, if you are planning your extended essay in psychology, stick to a thorough research review.
