Accountability Pillar Survey
As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar survey 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. Over the last number of years, many school jurisdictions have also used the Tell Them From Me student survey as part of their accountability process. This year, Alberta Education offered an opportunity for school jurisdictions to administer a student survey consisting of both the Accountability Pillar questions and selected measures from the Tell Them From Me survey. EIPS is pleased to be a part of this project.
Ardrossan Jr. Sr. did very well in the survey. Following are some of the more notable results.
High School Drop Out Rate – AJS – 0.9%, EIPS – 2.2%, Province – 3.3%
High School Completion Rate – AJS – 89.6%, EIPS – 81.7%, Province – 74.9%
School Improvement – AJS – 83.9%, EIPS – 77.9%, Province – 79.8%
Rutherford Scholarship Eligibility Rate – AJS – 70.1%, EIPS – 62.2%, Province – 60.9%
The Diploma & Provincial Achievement Test acceptable standard & standard of excellence results for AJS were also well above the province.
