Accountability Pillar Survey

As an annual check-up on the education system, the Accountability Pillar provides an opportunity for Alberta Education and school authorities to ensure that we are equipping students for success.

The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators. Data on these indicators consists of surveys of students, parents and teachers on various aspects of education quality, student outcomes such as dropout and high school completion rates, and provincial assessments of student learning.

From January to the end of February, Alberta Education will be conducting the annual Accountability Pillar Survey. 

  • In January, parents of students in grades 4, 7 and 10
  • In February, students in grades 4, 7 and 10 and all teachers will be completing their surveys online at school.

All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with your school.  In addition to English and French, the parent survey is available in Chinese, Punjabi, Arabic, Blackfoot, Dene, Cree, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and Urdu.

Your participation in the survey helps provide important information on the quality of education your child is receiving, so we encourage you to return your survey promptly.

Survey results will be available to school authorities in May and will be reported publicly as part of their 3-Year Education Plans and Annual Education Results Reports.

Invest in the future.

Alberta Education invites you to play an important role in your child’s education.

By completing this survey, you are giving your school, your school authority, and your provincial government important information about the quality of education your child is receiving and helping to ensure they are being prepared for success.

When you complete the Accountability Pillar survey, you’re adding your voice to the future of education in your school and throughout Alberta.

Results are used by schools, school authorities, and government to see what’s working and what needs to be improved.

We all have a part to play in the important work of educating the next generation of Albertans.

Thank you for your participation.
