IBT November 2022 results released in IndiaACER news 17 Apr 2023 3 minute read
From November to January 93 schools in India participated in the November 2022 session of the International Benchmark Tests (IBT).
The IBT is an annual assessment of academic achievement that measures students’ learning against the international assessment framework developed over the past 15 years by Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) researchers and educational measurement experts.
Schools from several countries – including leading schools in India affiliated with different school boards – participate in the assessment each year. Students take the tests from November to January, based on their schools’ test dates.
In India this year, more than 67,000 assessments were sat in English, Mathematics, Science and Reasoning across Grades 3 to 10. Schools have now received reports detailing their students’ levels of achievement in relation to the IBT scales and to the international cohort, providing rich insights for educators to support their students’ future learning.
IBT’s reports are underpinned by reporting scales developed by ACER that describe the skills, knowledge and concepts that students are demonstrating, as well as providing robust indicators of learning growth. Schools around the world use these reports to better understand students’ strengths and next steps in learning. In addition, the reports also provide context with relevant, reliable comparisons to students participating in the IBT around the world.
ACER India are now working with IBT schools in India to support them in the effective use of data from the IBT 2022 reports to improve learning in these schools and across India. Students will receive their IBT results and certificates recognising their participation and achievement directly from their schools.
