by Batson, Beth, Ed.D., TREVECCA NAZARENE UNIVERSITY, 2010, 59 pages; 3413094


This study explored the effects of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program on student achievement. Implementation of the program was described and data from before, the year of, and the year after implementation were used to determine growth patterns in each subject. Students made statistically significant gains after the first year of implementation in all subjects with the exception of social studies, and statistically significant gains were made in social studies after the second year of implementation. The special education subgroup realized statistically significant growth after the first year of implementation in math and in reading after the second year. No statistically significant difference was found in International Baccalaureate students’ community service involvement compared with their non-International Baccalaureate peers.
