The IB Diploma Programme (DP) is a rigorous, academically challenging and balanced two-year programme of education designed to prepare students aged 15 to 17 for success at university and in life beyond.
The DP provides opportunities to develop both disciplinary and interdisciplinary knowledge and understanding that meet rigorous standards. It is a truly international programme incorporating the best educational practices from around the world, while remaining free from the influence of any particular system or government. In addition to academic excellence, it encourages inquiry, caring, open-mindedness, intercultural understanding, and the attitudes necessary to respect and evaluate a range of viewpoints.
The aim of DP curriculum development is to produce excellent, internationally minded, research-based materials that support schools in enabling students to develop the attributes of the learner profile and to carry out the IB mission thereby providing an excellent preparation for life in the 21st century.
The IB goes to great lengths to ensure that curriculum development is research-based, consultative and collaborative, and driven by the IB mission and the international dimension of the programme. For all courses, the IB: collects comprehensive feedback from teachers, students, universities, and subject matter and educational experts; conducts a thorough analysis of existing assessment instruments; and under- takes a thorough literature review. High quality assessment plays a critical and ongoing role in curriculum development and is considered throughout the process.
