In May and June, Grade 6 students throughout the province will write Provincial Achievement Tests in language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Results from these tests will provide Alberta Education, school administrators, teachers, parents/guardians, students and the public with information about what students know and can do in relation to provincial standards at the end of Grade 6.
Provincial Achievement Tests are based on what students have been learning throughout the school year, so they will be marked by teachers before they are returned to Alberta Education in June.
In the fall, an Individual Student Profile showing your child’s achievement test results will be sent to your child’s grade 7 school and will be then given to your child to take home to you. This profile is prepared by Alberta Education after the marking and scoring of tests has been completed and the final scores are calculated; it will present your child’s performance on each test in relation to provincial standards.
Reports that show how well our school’s students did as a group in relation to provincial standards, will be available at our school and on our school’s website in the fall. Parents/Guardians are invited to attend a School Council Meeting scheduled early in the school year to discuss the results at that time.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the principal.
