History Internal Assessment

20 marks Total: 1500–2000 words (counts 20% HL, 25% SL final grade)

All Internal Assessments must include the following clearly labelled sections:

A Plan of the investigation 2 marks 100-150 words
B Summary of evidence 5 marks 500-600 words
C Evaluation of sources 4 marks 250-400 words
D Analysis 5 marks 500-650 words
E Conclusion 2 marks 150-200 words
F Bibliography or List of Sources 2 marks not part of the word count

An Appendix may be included when relevant
All References must be footnoted correctly wherever they appear.

    • Choose a topic where there is some historical debate & opinion, otherwise you might struggle to score highly in Section D. Weaker candidates failed to show this.
    • Keep the title of your IA simple: ‘Why did Stalin begin the Purges?’; ‘Did political motives dominate Mao`s intentions during the Cultural Revolution?; ‘Could the Dutch have prevented the Japanese occupation of Indonesia in 1942?’ BUT not too specific where there is no range of historical writing.
    • Produce a title page where title, word count are clearly stated. Write word count again at end, for the examiners sake.
    • Wherever you refer to a source, it must be accurately referenced and appear in a footnote.

Section A Plan of the Investigation 2 marks

    • The subject of the investigation which should be written as a question
    • The methods to be used in the investigation
