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.
Teachers will remain focused on delivering the programs of study for all courses and will continue to assess student achievement based on the grade level outcomes as determined by the Government of Alberta.
You can help your child prepare for Provincial Achievement Tests by making sure that he/she has had a good night's sleep before the test; eats a nutritious breakfast; and arrives on time the morning of the test. All tests start promptly at 9:00 AM.
