2019 Accountability Pillar Overview ResultsFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

High Prairie, Alberta – The Alberta Government released the 2018-19 provincial achievement test results and the 2018-19 diploma exam results. These standardized tests are one way of enabling Alberta Education, as well as parents, teachers, and school boards, to assess student achievement and to identify strengths and areas for improvement. HPSD was pleased to see successes in the Program of Studies and School Improvement measures.

Our Provincial Achievement Test (PAT) results saw improvement over last year and both the Diploma Exam Participation Rate and Rutherford Scholarship Eligibility Rate measures were higher than our Three Year Average. We were also pleased to see an increase in our High School Completion Rate measure. Some areas of improvement for the current and coming school year include increasing the Diploma and PAT excellence measures as well as increasing the Programs of Studies measure.

As with previous years’ results, the strengths and areas for improvement have fluctuated this year and are only one indication of student abilities. HPSD recognizes that there will always be room for growth; we will continue to focus on both literacy and numeracy as we move forward into the school year. We remain committed to improving student learning with a focus on improving academic success for all students.
