The Fraser Institute’s Report Card of Alberta Elementary Schools

On February 15th, the Fraser Institute released it’s annual report card of elementary schools in Alberta to the public. This document ranks elementary schools based on the results of the Grade 3 and 6 Provincial achievement exams. This  report is a snapshot of one day of school and the performance of students on that day using a specific set of exams. It is not realistic to expect that the same results would be obtained every day as the contextual variables affecting students change as they enter our schools across the city each day. As a district, we utilize a number of forms of data in order to improve our approach to teaching and learning. The Fraser Institute Report Card of Elementary Schools provides one piece of data in a large bank of collected and analysed information that that individual schools and the greater district use throughout the year when looking at student achievement.

Complete results from the Report Card can be viewed at http://www.fraserinstitute.org/reportcards/schoolperformance/alberta.htm#elementary.
