CAS activities should ensure student development through:
A successful CAS programme must show evidence of all 7 learning outcomes:
Students will be using the ManageBac to document their activities. Students build their online CAS Portfolio where they are allowed to enter activities, upload evidence linked to one or more learning outcomes and reflect on their activities and progress on a regular basis.
In addition, students must keep a CAS journal where they document evidences, reflections, pictures, CDs, drawings, or any other form of communication. The CAS Coordinator is to regularly check students’ CAS journals. The CAS Coordinator is to hold on to the students’ journals for 1 year after the students have completed their DP.
CAS is internally assessed however, a failure to adequately complete and provide evidence for completion is considered a failing condition for the IB Diploma.
