Provincial Assessment Results

Alberta Education has released their annual Accountability Pillar Report. These reports are one way of assuring Albertans that the education system is meeting provincial standards and the needs of students. Standardized tests Provincial Achievement Tests (PATs) and diploma exams are used in several Accountability Pillar measures and are one way of enabling Alberta Education, as well as parents, teachers, and school authorities, to assess student achievement and to identify strengths and areas for improvement. Provincial assessments are meant to complement, not replace, day-to-day teacher observations and classroom assessment. Other tools such as survey results from parents, teachers and students as well as ongoing data collection also inform this report.

Overall measures related to student learning and achievement in Foothills School Division have continued to improve. Foothills School Division is at or above Provincial Standards in 10 out of 16 measures and continues to focus on growth and improvement.

Superintendent Chris Fuzessy shared, “Foothills School Division is committed to providing rich, responsive, meaningful, and appropriate experiences for learners in our school community.  We are fortunate to have a highly qualified and dedicated staff that is focused on improving learning for all students.  We use this report to help inform on which strategies have been effective and what areas for growth and focus we must strive to improve.  Our priority remains to provide flexible, equitable, safe and caring learning environments for each and every student within our division."

 

Highlights from the 2018-19 year results:

  • Improved in the areas of:
    • Education Quality (91.1% compared to 90.2% provincially)
    • Drop Out Rate (0.7% compared to 2.6% provincially)
    • School Improvement (84.0% compared to 81.0% provincially)

  • Achieved a level of Excellent in the categories of Safe and Caring, Program of Studies, Education Quality, Drop-out rate, High School Completion, School Improvement, and Citizenship

 

Areas of growth and focus for the 2019-20 school year include:

  • Overall Diploma excellence rating (FSD currently at 18.5%, an upward trend but still below the Province 24.0%)
  • Continue to support growth in achievement for our French Immersion Programs
  • Continue to support growth in achievement for our First Nations Metis and Inuit students
  • Through a variety of instructional programs, sustaining the emphasis on the development of strong literacy and numeracy skills, which are vital to student success in school, work and life

 

Divisional education plans and annual results reports are submitted to Alberta Education. As part of the process, FSD schools will be working on strategies to improve student learning. In the meantime, for more information about provincial assessment results at your child’s school, please contact the school principal.
