There will be 2 scores that go into PowerSchool: one will be a completion grade to give you credit for doing your best and putting effort into the activity. The other will be a mock IOC score, using the IB rubric, so you have an idea of where you are. The mock IOC score will be entered in PowerSchool for your and your parents’ information, but not calculated in your marking period average.
