The school principal must report annually to the parents of students in the school and to the school community the school’s results on provincial assessments, including information on the local context and the limitations of assessments. The school principal must report on the percentage of students who achieve the acceptable standard and the percentage of students who achieve the standard of excellence on diploma examinations, as well as student participation in diploma examination courses. Student results based on school marks and final marks can also be reported.
Provincial results for diploma examination courses are released/web-posted annually by the Minister in the fall. Prior to this release/web-posting, a multiyear summary report containing examination results, school-awarded results and final combined results for all diploma examination administrations is provided to schools and school authorities via a secure website. Following the ministerial release, the multiyear summary reports are provided on Alberta.ca. For more information, schools can refer to Accountability in Alberta’s K to 12 education system on Alberta.ca.
