The IB’s research on programme outcomes seeks to investigate the impact of IB programmes and understand the value of an IB education by identifying the qualities and characteristics that distinguish IB schools and students.
Studies are conducted both internally and externally by universities, research organizations, and our research department.
Areas of inquiry include, but are not limited to: student performance, programme implementation, the learner profile, and standards alignment.
