Alberta Education’s Assurance Framework provides the basis for accountability and public assurance in the Kindergarten to Grade 12 education system. To support the framework, the provincial government collects survey data on behalf of schools and school authorities to assess our learning goals as schools, school authorities and as a provincial government. The survey results are combined with those from other measures to provide key information about how the education system is doing.
Results show which measures have improved, which have remained constant and which have declined. It allows everyone – parents, teachers, school authorities, students and the province – to celebrate successes and respond to challenges together. Schools and school authorities are expected to share their results and plans for improvement with the community so they can review them. At a glance, the results point out successes and areas of concern from a local and provincial perspective.
