1 Summary of the Results October 13,

2 Acceptable Standard: Students who scored at or above the ‘cut’ score... Basically those who passed the test Standard of Excellence: Students who achieved excellence on the test... Generally, above 85% 2

3 Cohort: All students registered in a grade for the school year. This includes those who do not write due to absence or exemption. Non-writers’ are scored zero. Writers: The students who actually write the test. 3

4 Math 3, 6 and 9: This was a new curriculum in and therefore a pilot PAT. The results are not included in the analysis. Grade 3: These students write only Language Arts and Math. 4

5 For the purposes of this analysis, differences greater than 4% are indicated by either… Red, for a negative difference Green, for a positive difference, Yellow where the difference was statistically similar. 5

6 Rate at which students who were registered in a grade also wrote the provincial achievement test. Including Vista Virtual... On par with province in grade 3 and 6, lower in grade 9. Grade 3Grade 6Grade 9 English Language Arts 92.3% (+1.2) 90.3% (-0.4) 80.6% (-9.2) Math New Form ScienceNA 89.3% (-0.6) 81.5% (-8.3) Social StudiesNA 89.% (-0.8) 82.7% (-7.0) 6

7 Rate at which students who were registered in a grade also wrote the provincial achievement test. Excluding Vista Virtual... Community schools exceed province in 6 tests, on par on 1. Grade 3Grade 6Grade 9 English Language Arts 97.3% (+6.2) 97.1% (+6.4) 93.1% (+3.3) Math New Form ScienceNA 96.8% (+6.9) 94.0% (+4.2) Social StudiesNA 96.4% (+6.6) 96.1% (+6.4) 7

8 The participation rates of students in our community schools exceeds that of the province on 6 of 7 measurable tests, and is on par on the other. PHRD’s higher participation rates means that more of our students write than most of the province... Therefore less tests are scored as zero. 8

9 AGGREGATED COHORT RESULTS: The provincial results have remained virtually static for 8 years. 9

10 AGGREGATED COHORT RESULTS: PHRD results are slightly better than last year, and are similar to previous years’ results. 10

11 AGGREGATED WRITER RESULTS: The provincial results have remained virtually static for 8 years. 11

12 AGGREGATED WRITER RESULTS: PHRD results have remained virtually static for 8 years as well. 12

13 Students who did not write are scored as zero. This data includes Vista Virtual. Grade 3Grade 6Grade 9 English Language Arts 77.5% (-4.1) 83.7% (-0.4) 69.7% (-9.6) Math New Form ScienceNA 78.3% (+1.7) 64.1% (-8.8) Social StudiesNA 71.3% (+0.4) 62.0% (-6.0) 13

14 Students who did not write are scored as zero. This data excludes Vista Virtual in the cohort. Grade 3Grade 6Grade 9 English Language Arts 81.7% (+0.1) 90.0% (+6.7) 80.5% (+1.2) Math New Form ScienceNA 84.8% (+8.2) 73.9% (+1.0) Social StudiesNA 77.2% (+6.3) 72.1% (+4.1) 14

15 (Vista Virtual is not a factor). Concerns: Grade 3 ELA, and grade 9 ELA. Grade 3Grade 6Grade 9 English Language Arts 84.0% (-5.5) 92.6% (+0.8) 86.5% (-1.0) Math New Form ScienceNA 87.7% (+2.5) 78.6% (-2.6) Social StudiesNA 80.1% (+1.1) 75.0% (-0.8) 15

16 PHRD’s Community School Cohort results are on par with the province on 3 of 7 measurable tests, and exceed the province in Grade 6 ELA, Science and Social Studies, and in Grade 9 Social Studies. PHRD’s Writers were on par with the province on 6 of 7 measurable tests, and are a little below the province in 3 ELA. PHRD’s aggregate cohort results are consistent to previous years. 16

17 Vista Virtual students are all over the province and beyond. Their non-participation results from many valid reasons that include: distance to writing centers, being out of province at time of tests, general dissatisfaction with the community schools in proximity to families involved. 17

18 Vista Virtual School’s low rate of participation impacts PHRD overall Cohort results by approx: -4% in grade 3 -6% in grade 6 -10% in grade 9 This difference grows as community school achievement improves. 18 When, or IF, Achievement Tests could be written on-line, and supervision rules were adapted, VV students would be much more likely to write the tests.

19 19 PHRD’s Writers have demonstrated reasonable consistency for the past 7 years. PHRD’s grade 3 ELA results have declined slightly over time. Grade 6 achievement is improving over time and is generally a little better then Provincial rates. Grade 9 achievement has improved, particularly in Science, but we still lag behind Provincial rates.

31  Province  Jurisdiction  School  Grade Level  Student 31 Teacher teams examine and analyze all results... By student and by outcome... At risk...

32 For the purposes of this analysis, differences greater than 4% are indicated by either… Red, for a negative difference Green, for a positive difference, Yellow where the difference was statistically similar. 32

33 EXAM marks: These reference the achievement of students on the exam itself. COURSE Marks: These reference the success of students in the course as a whole. Participation Rates: reflects the percentage of students enrolled in their 3 rd yr of high school in the reported school year and who completed the course in the reported school year. Students may have completed the course in an earlier school year. 33

34 34 Overall – Consistent rate of participation in Diploma Exams.

Classes included students that would have otherwise taken Science 30

37 On the diploma exams themselves, PHRD students were similar to the province on 5 of 10 tests In Biology and Social Studies 30-1, PHRD students achieved less well than was expected. There is a gap when these results are compared to the province. The exam marks alone are only half of the assessment story… 37

39 39 Overall – Consistent achievement in acceptable level. 95% of students are successful in courses that have a Diploma Exam.

40 40 Diploma Exam Courses – Final Course Marks: HUMANITIES Humanities: Generally very good rate of achievement of the acceptable standard. Excellence: Typical levels with decline in SS30-2.

41 41 Diploma Exam Courses – Final Course Marks: MATHEMATICS Maths – Achievement in both courses is very consistent and at a high level.

42 42 Diploma Exam Courses – Final Course Marks: SCIENCES Sciences – Biology took a significant dip. Chemistry has recovered a little bit. Physics and Science are quite strong.

43 Overall results indicate another strong performance, consistent with previous years. 95% of students achieved acceptable standard in the course (all exams combined). 43

44 There is a trend of improvement in English Language Arts We continue to do well in both Pure and Applied Math courses 2 of the ‘big’ 3 science results were below expectations Biology had a lower than anticipated result. Chemistry seems to be recovering Physics is strong and demonstrated some improvement 44

45  Principals facilitate conversations and analysis of results. Successes: Which courses, How and Why? Concerns: Which courses, Why and Specifically What elements in the Program of Studies?  Students of concern can be identified  A focus of Professional Learning Community work when issues are identified  Timetabling and class sizes continue to be carefully developed and monitored 45

46 Any questions? 46
