STUDENT LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT

International Benchmarking Tests (IBT) in English and Maths

Each year pupils take part in the International Benchmarking Tests (IBT) in English and Maths administered by ACER the Australian Council for Educational Research.

Each year ACER’s psychometrics team create a benchmark IBT international sample which helps students and schools understand how their individual performance compares to other schools participating in the IBT Program. IBT provides a detailed evaluation of our students’ performance at the international level; the reference sample is based on testing in almost 600 schools in 11 countries.

The schools participating are from Asia, Middle East, Africa and North America. Additionally there is a comparison with one other country, in this case Australia. As fewer than fifteen schools in the UK take part there can be no comparison nationally.

As you will see our scores put Ashton House School above the Australian results and well above the international average - click here to view.
