​​​​​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.​​​​​​​

Provincial Achievement Tests

PATs at Rosedale

At Rosedale, our Grade 6 & 9 students write achievement tests in May and June. We ask that you ensure your child gets a good nights sleep the night before the test and that they have a healthy breakfast. They might need a water bottle or healthy snack on these days also.

ExamBank is a web site where students can write online practice exams in core subject areas. The practice exams consist of questions pertaining directly to the Alberta curriculum that are randomly selected by individual unit or the course as a whole. The exams are automatically and instantly scored, providing immediate feedback for the student, enabling them to see where their strengths and weaknesses lie.

Rosedale Middle School Students in grades 6-9 are powering through their last full week of the 2021-22 year by showing School Spirit! We'll be kicking off the week by dressing like our favourite character from a show, book, history, band, or so much more on Monday! https://t.co/obI185VaSH

Our 8s were diving into the science and social issues of filtering unsanitary water. Clean and safe drinking water is something we take for granted but for almost 1 billion people around the world this isn’t the case. #yycbe #wearecbe #edchat https://t.co/lgDCakPpnf

Strong mental math skills start and end with the use games and manipulatives. Games like totality build resilience to create stronger understanding of number sense. #yyccbe #wearecbe #math #maths #edchat #mathchat https://t.co/4U6dyxUQyU
