Understanding the Results

Provincial Assessment Results

This report provides school-level data on provincial assessments. The Provincial Assessment Results table outlines the subjects and the grade levels assessed. It also provides the assessment targets to be achieved by 2025 as part of the provincial education plan. Three years of data are presented for your school, enabling you to see how your school is performing over time

Provincial Targets

Ninety percent of students will achieve appropriate or higher levels on provincial language, mathematical and scientific literacies on provincial assessments at the elementary, middle and high school levels.


  • NR = Not Reportable (too few students to report results in accordance with the Department’s confidentiality guidelines).
  • Students who did not write for reasons other than an approved exemption are not included in the calculation of the Grade 10 and French Second Language Oral Proficiency results. This will be the case for the reporting of all assessments beginning in 2018-19.

Exemption Rates

In certain circumstances, it is necessary and appropriate for students to be exempted from participating in provincial assessments if the testing format does not allow demonstration of their learning, even with accommodations. Exemptions fall into three broad categories: academic, social/emotional and unforeseen. Typically, academic exemptions are sought for students following an individualized Personalized Learning Plan (PLP-I). Students who are exempt due to an PLP-I should be assessed on those goals that are set out in their Personalized Learning Plan (PLP).

The Exemption Rates table identifies the percentage of students who were formally excused from a provincial assessment. All students are included in the overall reporting of provincial assessment results.

For more information on exemptions and accommodations, refer to the online document Provincial Assessment Program: Protocols for Accommodations and Exemptions.
