© ISB The ISB is a central facility for consultation and support for the Bavarian school system. It renders research findings and practical experience applicable for schools. The ISB is financed by the State of Bavaria and sets impulses for the schools' continuing qualitative development. In concrete terms, the ISB promotes schools' pedagogic, didactic and methodological work, develops curricula for all school types, provides teaching materials, designs central examination and test questions and tasks, accompanies school evaluation conceptually and on location, and contributes to advanced teacher training. The ISB advises the State Ministry conceptually in education-related issues.
