Research and Survey Results

Questionnaire Survey for the dissemination of IB education

We conduct questionnaire surveys with the aim of confirming the effectiveness of IB education and the issues related to dissemination through questionnaires to stakeholders and leveraging the results in the promotion of efforts to disseminate IB education. We conduct a questionnaire survey every year targeting a variety of people involved (faculty members, students, and parents) at IB-related institutions (IB accredited and candidate schools, universities that offer an IB instructor development course, and universities that implement an IB-based entrance examination) and publish the results, including the status of the dissemination and the effectiveness of the introduction of IB education, once a year.

The above research and surveys are conducted in collaboration with external educational institutions, such as universities that have a Department of Education that offered an IB course or conducted IB research in the past. They were conducted to inform the public of the effectiveness of IB education in Japan and to provide useful materials for the selection of candidates to universities in Japan. We will publish the survey results after consulting with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology and taking the protection of personal information and intellectual property of the IB into consideration.
