Description:

The pre-publication of this report by the Committee on Programs for Advanced Study of Mathematics and Science in American High Schools has recently been made available on the National Academy Press Web site. The 51-page report was undertaken to "compare the Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and alternative programs for advanced study in biology with regard to content, pedagogy, and outcomes." An important finding of the report is that biology education in general has deficiencies at all levels, from primary school through the undergraduate level. Particularly, the report found that "AP and IB courses tend in general to be out of date, too broad, and too inflexible."
