Extended Essay: EE Reflections

Why reflection is important in the EE Process

Remember, you are limited to a total of 500 words for all three reflections!


The Omaha Central Extended Essay timeline is designed to emphasize the importance of the the three mandatory reflection periods that end with a written reflection on the Reflections on Planning and Progress Form (RPPF).  See the completed RPPF samples on this page.

The form states the following:

 “The first formal reflection session should focus on your initial ideas and how you plan to undertake your research; the interim reflection session is once a significant amount of your research has been completed, and the final session will be in the form of a viva voce once you have completed and handed in your EE.” 


Sample RPPFs by Subject Area

Here are a few sample RPPFs -- provided so you can see what other students have written for their required Extended Essay reflections. You may use these as inspiration -- but keep in mind that we don't know how these reflections were scored!
