The International Baccalaureate (IB) Global Research Department collaborates with universities and independent research organizations worldwide to produce rigorous studies examining the impact and outcomes of IB programmes. Areas of inquiry include, but are not limited to: standards alignment, programme implementation, the learner profile and student performance. In addition, many researchers—independent of the IB—produce quality studies on the effects of IB programmes.
