Provincial Achievement Tests (PATs) are administered to students in Grades 6 and 9.
The purpose of the Provincial Achievement Testing program is to:
- Determine if students are learning what they are expected to learn
- Report to Albertans how well students have achieved provincial standards at given points in their schooling
- Assist schools, authorities, and the province in monitoring and improving student learning
