Alberta Education surveys students in grades 4-12 each year to measure their level of satisfaction with the help they receive at school in reading and writing.  

Priority 1

Student Growth and Success

Foster growth and success for every student by supporting their journey from early learning through high school completion and beyond.

Goal Two

Success for every student

Outcome: More students demonstrate growth and achieve student learning outcomes with a specific focus on literacy and numeracy.

Why is it important?

Literacy and numeracy are foundations of successful learning and living, and help students reach their full potential and experience a better quality of life. These skills are also essential in the workplace.

To discover and make meaning of the world, students need the ability to acquire, create, connect, and communicate information in a variety of situations that go beyond the foundational basics of reading, writing, and solving simple arithmetic problems.

* Survey results were impacted by changes in the number of students responding to the survey through the introduction of the Tell THEM From ME survey tool in 2014.
