The data stems from Durham University’s Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring which is the leading institution in the UK for monitoring student progress. This data illustrates year on year performance and academic progress when compared with all IB students across the world.
Progress is also considered as “Value-added”. Value-added takes the grade students have on entry to the school based on their prior attainment and measures how much progress is made by each individual.
The first graph shows the value-added to each student. This means the increase in grades that they achieve compared to those predicted according to IBO data.
The second graph shows the spread of schools across the world with most grouped around the middle (the mean) and extreme performers at either end. The British International School Shanghai, Pudong is in the 95th percentile.
These outstanding results are a tremendous credit to the hard-work of these students, and we also recognise the dedication and support of the teachers who have helped them achieve such excellent progress.
