Trails we believe in transparency. We understand that our community wants to
know how our students are doing. For the past
number of years, we have made it our practice to share student results in
literacy, numeracy and engagement in our
Report to the Community that is distributed far and wide - including every home in our division.
Our Board is
proud of the success of our students, but also
realistic that we can always do more. That is why our Trustees support programs
and innovative initiatives to improve student achievement.
“We applaud the
government’s move to increase transparency and accountability by releasing the grade 12 Math and ELA
results on a division-by-division basis. While we are pleased that our
results in Pembina Trails are, for the most part, above the provincial
average, our Board is committed to reaching an even higher level of
success,” shared Chair of the Board, Julie Fisher.
Understanding what provincial tests do
and how much they count
are given each semester. These tests count for 30 per cent of students’ final
course grades for Language Arts ( English/French) as well as Applied and
Pre-Calculus Mathematics, and 20 per cent of students’ final course grades for
tests are developed by teachers who sit on provincial committees under the
direction of Manitoba Education and Training (MET). They are marked by our teachers using provided guides. MET also provides our teachers training for marking and gives feedback on their
accuracy. It is important note, that these provincial tests are not standardized tests.
