Grade 9 Science PAT data

The following is Provincial Achievement Test data from 2012-2016 for Grade 9 Science. Due to the flood in 2013, the vast majority of Grade 9 Calgary students did not write the PATs, so I did not include the 2013 data for the CBE and CSSD. For further information on the terms I am using in these graphs and notes about looking at PAT data, please read this prior post.

First is a graph that shows what percentage of Grade 9 students actually wrote the test.

sci9-participation

The following two graphs show what percentage of students met the acceptable standard (ie. passed the test) as a percentage of all the students enrolled in Grade 9 and then as a percentage of all the students who wrote the test.

sci9-acc-enr

sci9-acc-wri

And now, for the graphs of the percentage of students who met the standard of excellence, again based on all students enrolled, and then only on the students who wrote the test.

sci9-exc-enr

sci9-exc-wri

Finally, here is a graph showing the average adjusted score of the students who wrote the test.

sci9-mean

Again, each graph provides different perspectives and it is important to consider all of them when analyzing achievement data.
