Concept Description

Last Updated: 2009-08-11

Introduction

    NOTE: This concept contains analytical information about the contents of the Education data up until the year 2007/2008, when the data was initially received at MCHP. This includes detailed description of the school year data from 1995/1996 to 2006/2007. The concept was last updated in August 2009, so some of the information is out-of-date. Please see the LINKS section below for access to more up-to-date information.

    This concept describes some of the school year data and education information that is available from the MCHP Data Repository. This includes a table of the type of school year data that is available for each year, as well as links to detailed information, analyses, and discussion of the yearly data. The type of education information that is available includes:

    • enrollment by school type, either including adult learners or excluding adult learners
    • enrollment by grade
    • enrollment in grade 12 by 17 years of age
    • enrollment in S4 University Preparation math courses, and
    • graduation rates by University Preparation math course enrollment
    • Grade 9 - 12 course marks for each student
    • Grade 3 Language Arts Standards and Grade 3 Math Standards test results
    • Grade 12 Language Arts Standards Tests - test status results and the range of marks
    • Grade 12 Math Standards Tests - test status results and the range of marks

IMPORTANT NOTES

    This is our second endeavor to describe in detail the year-to-year school data. Please note:
    1. Not all of the information described above is available for each year. For example, the grade 12 Language Arts Standards Tests were not administered during the 2000-2001 school year.
    2. The first two years of data, 1995/1996 and 1996/1997 are only partially complete, meaning not all the education data is available for all registered students.

    Additional information related to the education data is available:

School Year Data - Summary of Information Available

    Enrollment data for each school year is available from 1995/96 to 2007/08.

    However for some years, the data is only partially complete or not available at all. For example, only partial data is available for the 1995/1996 and 1996/1997 school years. In addition, the grade 12 Language Arts Standards Test and grade 12 Math Standards Tests are not available for the 2000/2001 school year because they were not conducted. The following table identifies the type of school year data available and describes how complete the data is.
