Grade 3 students participated in the pilot administration of the Student Learning Assessment.
The primary purpose of the Student Learning Assessment is to improve student learning. The SLA is also intended to enhance instruction and assure Albertans the education system meets the needs of the students and achieves the outcomes of the Ministerial Order on Student Learning. While every effort was made to ensure the success of this pilot, we realize there were variations in classroom experiences. Given this limitation, report interpretation for the pilot is best accomplished through conversation between parent, student and teacher. I encourage you to have a constructive conversation about your child’s results with your child’s teacher; centred on how we can continue to work together to support your child’s learning.
Gene Williams Acting Deputy Minister of Education
Golden Hills teachers use numerous and ongoing assessment instruments to support student learning and improve achievement. SLA’s are only one piece of evidence that teachers look at to inform of a child’s strength or areas in need of improvement. To learn more about your child’s learning please contact their teacher. Further information on SLAs can be found by visiting Alberta Education.
