Adding Value to IB Results

I was recently asked by a parent to explain how our school was judged to be in the top 5% of schools in the world for the International Baccalaureate. I thought therefore this might be worth sharing with others. Some of the data is quite complex so I hope the graphs make sense!

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.

If you would like any further information about these results or any of our other academic achievements, please contact Mark Wilson, Vice Principal, Director of Teaching and Learning.
