Beginning on May 9th our grade 6 and grade 9 students will be writing Provincial Achievement Tests (PAT) issued by the Alberta Government. All students that attend an Alberta Education school must write these tests which cover all subject areas.
The purpose of the Provincial Achievement Testing Program is to:
- Determine if students are learning what they are expected to learn
- Report to parents how well students have achieved provincial standards at given points in their schooling
- Assist schools and Alberta Education in monitoring and improving student learning.
Over the course of the year your child has been preparing for these exams and the results will be shared in September, 2019. If you would like your child to have additional practice at home they can visit
The tentative exam schedule is below. Any changes made to the exam schedule will be communicated in the parent We Chat groups.
