Alberta High School Dashboard (2017)

Each year, Alberta Education publishes diploma examination results for schools and school authorities. We’ve taken the 2016-2017 data and created the following visualization to help students, parents, and educators (1) evaluate the academic performance of their high school in comparison to the average performance of all high schools in the province; (2) compare the average school awarded mark with the average diploma exam mark; and (3) determine trends in academic participation (the number of students writing diploma exams) for each of the core academic diploma courses at their school.

What’s the data source for the visualization?

Alberta Education diploma exam results, which are published every year. We’re using the most recent data from the 2016-2017 school year. Alberta Education’s site makes it difficult to see how schools perform over time in each of the core academic diploma courses. We’re trying to make it easy.
