ACCOUNTABLILTY PILLAR SURVEY
As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar provides an
opportunity for Alberta Education and school authorities to ensure that we are equipping
students for success.
The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators consisting of surveys of students,
parents and teachers on various aspects of quality; student outcomes such as dropout and
high school completion rates; and provincial assessments of student learning.
From January to the end of February, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual
Accountability Pillar Survey. In January, parents of students in grades 4, 7 and 10 will
receive a survey from Alberta Education. In February, students in grades 4, 7 and all
teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.
All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with the school. In addition
to English and French, the parent survey is available in Chinese, Punjabi, Arabic, Blackfoot,
Cree, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu.
Your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of
education your child is receiving, so we encourage you to return your survey promptly.
Survey results will be available to school authorities in May 2016, and will be reported
publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports
