IB Diploma Results 2018

We are tremendously proud of our graduating class of 2018 and their accomplishments on their IB Diploma exams.  This year, 107 students took the IB Diploma exams and we are pleased to report a 99% pass rate and an overall average of 35 points with 64% of students achieving 35 points or more. We are also delighted to announce that one student achieved the maximum 45 points. Beyond these outstanding results, each student has contributed significantly to our ISB community and impressed with their unique talents both in and out of the classroom. Our dedicated teaching staff and supportive parent community all played a role in creating the conditions for these students to succeed.

MAP Test Results Fall 2018

We track our students’ progress with a range of different assessments. One of the methods ISB uses is the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), developed by Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA), as an externally referenced assessment tool to benchmark learning growth. MAP provides comprehensive data on student achievement and growth, over time, in Reading and Mathematics. Achievement in MAP is indicated by a RIT score, and it is expected that RIT scores will increase over time.

Fall 2018 Math

MAP results are provided as a numerical RIT (Raisch Unit) score. This score is used to measure a student’s achievement level at different times of the school year and compute growth.

*International = International school students
**USA = US Public school students. NWEA results are completed every three years. The most recent data of all NWEA norms is from 2015.

“Overall very good teaching, motivating students to develop their talents, positive and caring atmosphere and very good pastoral care. Our son found the greatest difference between the ISB and his previous school was the concern shown by teachers."
