Interview Rubric Oct/Nov Yr 12

Your CAS advisor will be using this rubric (see below) when interviewing you. Familiarise yourself with it to ensure that you have everything ready. A reminder that the information gathered from all 3 interviews will contribute towards you passing or failing your CAS (and therefore your IB Diploma) so BE PREPARED!

General Advice:

  • The focus should be on the Investigation and Preparation stages of CAS, your CAS goals and Learning Outcomes. You may also want to talk about your CAS Project
  • You should have started between 2-3 challenging experiences (from a minimum of 2 different CAS strands) and these should be well planned (have a goal and a timeline)
  • Each experience should have an agreed supervisor
  • You should be able to explain how each experience fits with the Learning Outcomes (think about learning outcomes 3, 6 and 7)
  • You should have an idea about what you want to do for your CAS Project (this needs to be completed by Easter Yr 12)

After you complete your interview:

  • You should write your first CAS reflection based on the interview discussion and focus on how you plan to meet the learning outcomes (rather than on any one experience)
