Abstract:

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is an advanced academic program undertaken by students in more than 700 schools in the United States and over 2,100 schools worldwide. The two-year program prepares students for university study and is recognized as a secondary credential worldwide, however, in the United States, this program is often less understood by university officials. In terms of university recognition, the IB Diploma is not accepted as a secondary credential for American high school students. Additionally, students who study in American IB World Schools may not receive credit for IB examinations or the IB Diploma while other programs, particularly the Advanced Placement Program, are highly recognized. Prior to this study, there have been two studies that have looked at university perceptions of the IB Diploma Programme, one in the United Kingdom in 2003, and one in Australia and New Zealand in 2007. Each study was completed by or in conjunction with International Baccalaureate. This poster presentation will show qualitative research that is the first effort to complete any work in North America and is the beginning work for a dissertation in the area of American university perception of IB. This work seeks to understand how five universities in the northeastern United States perceive the IBDP and IB students, while also asking questions about university credit policies. Results show that although American colleges and universities do not have policies in place that recognize IB programmes at the same level as the Advanced Placement Program and while recruiting opportunities are being missed, they do have high regard for IB students.
