Students of Clearview School Division have scored higher in provincial exams than in many divisions around Alberta.

Results of provincial achievement tests (PATs) for grades 3, 6 and 9 and the diploma exam for Grade 12 (DIPs) show that Clearview students outperformed students elsewhere in Alberta in the acceptable standard set by the provincial government in 11 out of 17 tests.

“We are proud of the Clearview community and have many positive things to celebrate,” said Ken Checkel who chairs the board and credits education partners with student success.

“These test results validate the hard work of our parents, students, teachers and support staff and I want to congratulate them.”

Clearview Superintendent John Bailey credits the efforts and focus of teachers and other staff in ensuring students’ success. Bailey says as in previous years, the division will closely analyze the test results and identify what actions can be taken to further improve students’ test performance.

Overview of test results

Clearview students outperformed students in the province in the acceptable standard in seven of eight tests with only the eighth test (Language Arts 9) being slightly (1.6 per cent) below the provincial average.

In five of eight tests, achievement at the acceptable standard was similar to or increased from the previous year: Language Arts 3, Math 3, Language Arts 9, Math 9 and Science 9.

As historically (at least six years), Clearview’s participation rates exceeded those of the province in every test area.

Diploma Exams

For the diploma test results, for grade 12 students, Clearview students outperformed other students in Alberta at the acceptable standard in four of nine subject areas (English 30-2, Social Studies 30 and 33, Pure Math 30).

Results at the acceptable standard remain very strong (over 85 per cent) in English 30-2 (91.4 per cent), Social Studies 30 (87 per cent) and Social Studies 33 (91.8 per cent).

At the acceptable standard results in Social Studies 33 are higher than the previous five years, Pure Math 30 is higher than the previous four years and English 30-1 is higher than the previous two years.
