Provincial Achievement Tests (PATs) are part of a balanced, broad-based program of student assessment for Grades 6 and 9 students. The results provide some of the information that guides our educators as they set targets for student achievement and track the results of school improvement initiatives. Visit the CBE website for more information on our students’ provincial testing​.

​​​​​​​

If your child is in Grade 6 or 9 at West Ridge this year, you will be receiving a school messenger soon with the PAT parent guide book for that specific grade.

There is another great resource that parents may also want to use with their child to review for upcoming PATs called “The Key Study Guide” which is completely aligned with the Alberta programs of study and is available at Amazon or Chapters/Indigo for purchase around $30. These books have review notes and practice questions that are easily accessible for parents and students.

Please contact Melissa Bartlett  if you have any generic questions about the administration of pro-vincial exams. Please contact teachers with any discipline and content specific questions about these exams.
