  2. Hi, Is my research question for an extended essay in economics to specific: "To what extent are hairdressers in *area* involved in gender price discrimination?" Please let me know!! Regards
  3. Hi guys. I just want to make sure whether this is a good knowledge question: "To what extent do ethics play a role in the justice system?". Is this a good KQ or should I change it to something else?
  4. I plan to do my Extended Essay on Economics, specifically price discrimination. Please share your thoughts on my Research Question and suggest how I can make it better.RQ : To what extent does the price discrimination that exists in the Cafes in Bukit Jelutong affects the consumer’s demand?I’ve noticed that the local Cafes where I live in, has a common practice of price discrimination for either students through student discounts or happy hours where any meals bought at a specific time is offered at a lower price. Being someone who enjoys these price discrimination, it has made me wonder how effective it actually is. Do these cafes actually experience higher customer traffic when such price discrimination is implemented? I plan to test this through analyzing whether the price discrimination leads to higher demand of the good.
  5. Hello, For my school, it is required to put in two EE proposals as they need to sort out the teachers to the students. I currently have come up with an RQ for my first choice which is visual arts but haven't managed to get it approved as I need to draw a conclusion but I have no clue what to write my EE about, I have yet to consult my business teacher but I think I'm leaning towards looking at e-commerce. Does anyone have any recommended RQ? Should I look at the company my dad works for, its a company that deals with taxes and financial stuff. If anyone has anything that could help, just a 2 minute answer would help. Thank you
  6. I have recently finally come up with a research question for my physics EE: "Investigating motion-detection through IR-emission and reception, considering speed and qualities of the moving object." My plan is to put up an IR-emitting and an IR-receiving circuit. When the Infrared transmission to the receiver is broken off, it will signal this. My assumption is that this method will fail detecting motion of very thin and transparent objects, with a low refractive index. So my EE will basically be about finding the limits of this method of motion-detection. Any criticism? Any input? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hey everyone, So I have started my research for my EE and I know what my topic is, it is the Sputnik Crisis, however, I am not sure about my exact RQ yet. Could you pls help? I would either want: how did the sputnik launch affect american confidence? or to what extent was the Sputnik an enduring sign of crisis in american confidence? Are these good, do u think? Thanks in advance, Eszter
  8. Hello! I am very interested in F. Scott Fitzgerald and his depiction of the jazz age through his different books. I've read The Great Gatsby & This Side of Paradise. I'm beginning to read The Beautiful & The Damned. Basically, I'm trying to figure out a way to tie all three books into a question. Ideally it would be all three but I can settle for just two books tied together. I know that many say that he has depicted himself within these books & that he has a very specific way of how he perceives and describes women within his novels. Please help me by leading me into the right direction with any advice you can provide me!!
  9. For my Extended Essay, I want to do a character analysis about Sansa Stark, from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. There is one line in the first book that pretty much sums up why the character is intelligent and strong in her own way: “courtesy is a lady’s armor” I love the fact that Sansa is not strong in a common way. People say she is not "badass" like other characters because she can't fight with a sword. So I'd like to write my EE on how Sansa Stark learns to use her abilities to stay alive and gain friends and allies through the series, but I don't know how I could formulate my RQ. I was thinking about something like: Courtesy is a lady's armor: An exploration of Sansa Stark's abilities and how they've kept her alive in A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin But I don't even know if that's an appropriate title for an EE. There's a lot of material I want to analyze, such as dialogues, monologues, relationships, metaphors and symbols, but I don't know what type of RQ would encompass all of those.
  10. Hello While I'm writing my EE on Visual Arts I'm not fully sure if I'm doing everything right. So my research question is: How significant is the influence of Tamara Łempicka's art on modern art? First of all I don't like the repetition of the word 'art'. I was brainstorming on some synonyms but just couldn't think about anything different. Second of all, is it enough? I mean is it really a research if I'm searching for various inspirations which were taken from this artist in order to create something new? I would be really thenkful for some feedback because it continuosly is on my mind.
  11. Hi guys, this is my first post and I would really appreciate if you guys could help me out with this problem. Here goes, so as you can tell by the title I'm doing my extended essay in business and management and I need help focusing my research question, my current question goes something like this : 'To what extent and how can red bull maintain its position in the market and combat the growing threat of competition?' , alternatively I've framed another question : 'To what extent can Red Bulls effective marketing strategies be attributed to its success in the market ?' , this one I made as a contingency, however the I don't understand the tools or theories I should use to analyze these questions. Thanks in advance, all suggestions are welcomed.
  12. Hello, everyone! I read all of those necessary threads before posting this but I'm still confused about the issue I have regarding the research question of the extended essay. In spring, I started doing my EE on psychology with a research question which was indeed a question. But today I became inconvenient with it and noticed that I'm comparing two psychological phenomena and therefore I could use something starting with "A Comparative Evaluation..." or something like that. It is much better in my opinion because those phenomena are very similar to each other, yet asking whether the causes of the first phenomenon can explain the others is odd to me. So, my question is: can the research question be like that new one since it is not a statement or a prompt or do I have to force it into a question form? I sent an email to my supervisor but I'm eager to start writing my EE as I have almost completed the information research part so I'm asking this here too. I found from the internet an EE example where two psychological therapies are compared and contrasted which has a similar RQ as I have now, but it dates back to 2007 so there may have been changes in rules regarding the RQ. I also have noticed that in my school there has been English A L&L and other language subject EEs which have RQs like "Theme X in Author's Novel Y" or "Theme X in Author 1's novel Y and Author 2's novel Z".
  13. I'm a biology HL student and my IA is on the effect of temperature on lactase activity. I finished my experiment successfully and I have started writing the actual IA, but I am concerned about the research question. My research question is the following: How does exposing lactase to different temperatures affect its activity as a catalyst of lactose breakdown in regular whole milk, measured by change in glucose concentration? I feel like it is very long, but my teacher disagrees and wants me to add more information in it, like the temperature range, the exact kind of milk (fat % included), and the device I used to measure glucose concentration (I used a blood glucose Glucometer). What should I do? I know people will say to trust my teacher, but nobody at my school trusts him and he's not the best Biology teacher. Please help.
  14. Hi! I have been working on my RQ for my psychology EE for a while now and my supervisor seems to like it but I want feedback from people who have actually done one and has some experience (as this is my teacher's first year of EE supervising...) So if you have done it, or if you just have some feedback on it, please tell me so I don't sit there in the middle of summer regretting my RQ and being too deep into it to change it To what extent is Lucid Dreaming a suitable therapy to sleep disorders? Thanks!
  15. Hello, thanks for clicking here. I finally decided on a research question of my history EE, but I'm not sure if it is correctly stated and overally ok. The two possibilities are: To what extent was the Gandhian non-violent resistance a success/ an effective strategy in restoring peace in India? Thanks for any feedback!
  16. Hello, After I don't get good significant data results for my IA experiments, I decided to change it The new one would be: on leakage (area) and the affects on the volume of leaked (water) The experiment would be on the relationship gained fro measuring the leakage (very small like needle diameter) and the time taken and also volume loss of water. The initial volume of water would be 1500 ml. Therefore, the area of leakage would be the number of holes in the container. The physics involve would be atmospheric pressure and also rate of drainage (does not seem so physics though). Any comments or improvements?? (harsh ones are also welcome)
  17. Hello, could you help me with my RQ? I decided to write about ritual slaughter (halal and kosher) in Poland, most likely. My RQ is now "Should the ritual slaughter be banned in Poland?" I know the question isn't very well formulated. Perhaps it would sound better with "To what extent.." rather than "should"? Or do you have any other ideas? Also, do you think it's narrow enough? I suppose it would be better to add some more details, right? Like, "religious freedom before or after animal rights?" Do you have ANY advices? Any feedback is appreciated.

So, my research question for my EE is "How external factors, such as different concentrations of pH from acidic to alkaline, effect the growth of crops like bean sprouts?" Please tell me if there is any improvement needed for my RQ, thank you!
  20. Hey, for an EE in English B I have to focus on an English culture. I always fail to focus my topic on the English culture or society. I came up with this RQ: To what extend does Sharia pose and obstacle for Muslim women's integration in British society? Do you think this question will help me to focus on the British culture? Is it even an appropriate topic for English B? I'm so confused and lost and my teacher isn't replying.
  21. Hi! I am writing my Extended Essay on the book On the Road by Jack Kerouac and want to focus on the Beat Generation. My RQ is 'How is the identity of the Beat generation reflected in Jack Kerouac's novel 'On the Road'? '. Do you think it's appropriate for the EE and is narrow enough?
  22. Hello everyone. My subject area is English B and I'm writing my EE on Orwell's '1984'. I need your advice on my research question; my first option is 'How effective is the use of dystopian features in G.Orwell's 1984?' And the second is: 'To what extent is the employment of technologies effective in creating a believable dystopia in George Orwell's "1984"?' I'm wondering which one is better and whether they're narrow enough. Also, if there are people who wrote their EE on "1984", please share your experience. Thank you beforehand.

  24. I need to have started my extended essay (history) in the next month or so but I'm struggling with narrowing down my topic. I'm interested in and researching the role of women in the Irish uprisings in the early 1900s. I don't really know how to make this more specific or if I'll be able to actually write a good research question for but I also don't know if I have time to start researching a new topic- any suggestions?
  25. I know people in here are not very fond of helping coming up with a RQ but I seriously need your help guys. My mum have been very, very sick for the fast few weeks so I am severly behind in school and got my mocks coming up in 3 weeks and after that we need to do the experiments for our Bio IA. Anyways: My plan was to do something on Parksinson's and Genetics so I came in contact with a researcher at Karolinska Institute who is leading a research group in finding out if Parkinson's disease is heritable. So - she offered me access to her lab which means I have access to all I need for doing genetic research, DNA of patients with and without parkinsons and ofcourse a PCR. I may not be interested in studying biomedicine or anything like that later in life, but as my dad suffers from parkinson's disease I just really wanted to make him proud and do my bio IA within the field of Parkinson's. So has anyone got any good ideas? It doesn't have to be advanced, it can also be anything on external causes of parkinson's or things that can relieve symptoms. Just anything would help so much! Please.
