The following are real IB Computer Science Internal Assessments submitted in the last couple of years. They are samples that were externally moderated, so the marks shown are the final IB mark & grade for each IA. The marks are out of 34 (as per the marking guide).

They have been generously shared by a fellow teacher from another school, for me to use with my classes, on condition they are not further distributed or shared. Please express your appreciation to them for these files by respecting their wishes.

  • Checkers (player v computer) - Mark 31, grade 7

Updates/changes affecting 2018 submissions

The IB has made changes with respect to anonymity of student work. Students should not include any identifying information within their IA work such as their:

  • Name
  • Name of school
  • Name of teacher
  • Client session number

Students are to only identify themselves using their 6 character IB code abc123.
