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​.

Provincial Achievement Test Results 2017-18

Provincial Achievement Test (PAT) data has been released by the government to Alberta schools. The primary purpose of the tests is not to measure individual student achievement, but to provide information to the school, and to Alberta Education, about the effectiveness of curriculum and our delivery of it. A comprehensive analysis of the data has taken place (the data is over 100 pages long), and trends, areas of strength and potential areas of growth have been identified. This information will be considered, from a k-6 perspective, as we design instructional tasks and develop individual and collective learning plans.

This year, during the months of May and June, CBE Students will be writing the Provincial Achievement Tests (PAT). Our Grade 6 students will receive guidance and information with regards to the PATs during the next few months of the school year.

For 2018-2019, Alberta Education provided teachers the choice of participating in the Grade 3 standardized Student Learner Assessments (SLAs). Our Grade 3 teacher agreed to participate, and as a result, all Grade 3 students completed SLAs. SLAs provide teachers with information about their students early in the school year. More information can be found at the following link www.education.alberta.ca/sla. Results of this assessment are used only as a diagnostic tool to help teachers plan for instruction as they help understand the needs of the students.

The following is a summary of the Grade 6 Provincial Achievement Tests, 2017-2018. They are a comparison of our students’ scores in relation to provincial averages and last years’ school results. Individual student results have been forwarded to those students Grade 7 schools. As always, we continue to be very proud of our individual students’ achievements, including their achievement on the PATs.

General Observations

  • While we are always proud of student (past and present) achievement, Provincial Achievement Test Scores show growth from last year’s results, and are higher than provincial results.
  • Improvement in Social Studies is noted. Results in previous years were atypical of student achievement trends at WOM, and this subject area was a focus of our School Development Plan (SDP).
  • Improved overall achievement scores resulted in our school meeting 7 of our 8 targets in our SDP (please refer to WO Mitchell Annual Report).
  • Observations of overall scores, and through item analysis of individual tests give rise to questions regarding teaching practice in support of students achieving excellence and having greater success on questions that are especially complex.
