Reseach of IB Impact

The IB’s Global Research Department collaborates with universities and independent research organizations worldwide to produce rigorous studies examining the impact and outcomes of the IB’s three programmes. Areas of inquiry include, but are not limited to: standards alignment, programme implementation, the learner profile and student performance.

This information sheet provides a brief overview of key findings to come out of recent research conducted or commissioned by the IB Global Research Department from 2008 to 2011, and does not attempt to represent all research on the IB available in the field. As with all research, findings must be placed within the particular contexts in which the studies took place. To read more in-depth summaries of the studies or the complete reports, as well as projects currently under way, please visit:
