Share This Post

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Research department collaborates with universities and research institutions worldwide to produce rigorous studies, examining the impact and outcomes of IB programmes.

These findings come from IB-commissioned studies on the Diploma Programme (DP), relating to three key themes: competencies and skills, equity and access, and higher education outcomes.

 

Highlights:

“Results indicated that IB students had significantly higher levels of critical thinking than their non-IB peers…”

 

“DP students felt that CAS had helped them to become more “communicative”, “willing to accept new challenges” and “collaborative”…”

 

“Alumni reported that the DP helped prepare them for college coursework, particularly in the areas of writing, critical thinking, study skills and time management”
