Alberta Education – How the Accountability Pillar works

Interesting Links

The Accountability Pillar uses data on student achievement from Provincial Achievement Tests and Diploma Exams, and information on perceived quality of education using survey data from students, parents, and teachers (conducted between January and March each year). It also uses additional student outcome data such as drop out rates (page 57), high school completion rates (page 59) and post-secondary transition rates (page 193).

Accountability Pillar measures are combined into seven categories, which track a jurisdiction’s progress towards reaching their education goals. Each category consists of measures evaluated both individually and as a group on both achievement (comparison against fixed provincial standards) and improvement (comparison against previous performance). An overall evaluation for each measure and each category is made by combining both the achievement and improvement results.
