Clearview School Division applauds results of provincial achievement tests and diploma exams for the 2012-13 school years.

“We see these results as evidence that we’re headed in the right direction as a jurisdiction,” John Bailey, the superintendent of schools, said in a news release.

“These tests are a snapshot of a particular moment in time, so they can’t give us the entire picture.

“However, we use them as one gauge among many to tell us how we are doing as a jurisdiction.”

Staff analyze and use the results to design strategies for improvement, he said.

“Knowing how well our schools are focusing on students, looking at these results is encouraging.”

Highlights of Clearview’s results on the provincial assessment measures:

— Exceeded the provincial average at the acceptable standard on 12 of 19 assessments, which is four more than the previous year.

— Improved from the previous year at the acceptable standard on 10 of 19 assessments.

— Surpassed our average of the previous three years at the acceptable standard on eight of 19 assessments.

— Achieved better than last year at the standard of excellence on nine of 19 assessments.

— Surpassed our average of the previous three years at the standard of excellence on nine of 19 assessments.

Clearview also has more students writing most diploma exams than the provincial average and exceeded the provincial average in participation rates on seven of nine diploma examinations, Bailey said.

“These results are due to the consistent efforts of many students, teachers, administrators and school board trustees, as well as numerous support staff, and parents, too. We all share in the responsibility of helping our students achieve success.”
