Context for Learning: Science, Mathematics, Geography - IAEP: Alberta Report.
Information collected as part of the International Assessment of Educational Progress II (IAEP II) about learning in Alberta (Canada) is provided, including information on the educational and cultural factors associated with student achievement and information on student attitudes, backgrounds, and experiences. Results for all participating countries (20 in science and mathematics and 9 in geography) have been distributed. This report indicates what 13-year-olds in Alberta have been able to achieve in science, mathematics, and geography. In Alberta, 119 randomly selected schools participated. Alberta students (n=1,459) did very well in science, scoring in the top one-third in all comparisons. The mathematics achievement of the 1,422 students was not as high, ranking in the middle third both nationally and internationally. Those who took the geography test, a brief assessment, scored in the top third in all comparisons. Results for participating countries are summarized for comparisons with Alberta and other Canadian provinces. Results and score distributions are presented in 27 tables. Appendix 1 gives an overall summary of test administration, and Appendix 2 describes quality control procedures. (SLD)
