To learn more about the IBT program and understand how it measures student ability and progress over time, see IBT Videos.
It is not necessary for students to prepare or study for the IBT tests. The IBT tests are designed to assess the ability of students at the time of the test date to identify strengths and weaknesses and to compare student performance internationally, between grades and overtime.
However in some countries IBT Partners and schools agree to distribute practice tests to students so they are more familiar with the test format and the type of questions before the testing date. If teachers would like a set of practice papers, they should contact their local country administrator.
