Review Committee on Outcomes: Survey Results, 2008
Alberta Education
In the spring of 2000, Alberta Education (previously Alberta Learning) appointed the Review Committee on Outcomes (RCO) to consult with Albertans to find out what they expected from the K-12 education system and how these expectations are being met. This report presents the main findings of the 2008 Satisfaction with Education in Alberta Surveys (which are telephone surveys of the public, teachers, school board members, superintendents, principals, senior high school students and parents of kindergarten to Grade 12 students) that related to 28 RCO outcomes and 34 survey measures for the kindergarten to Grade 12 education system. These satisfaction surveys are conducted annually by Alberta Education to obtain perceptions on how the education system is performing in meeting learners' and society's needs and expectations. 2004 was the first year that questions based on the RCO measures were included in the surveys. The public surveys were recently expanded including Superintendent Survey in 2007 and Principal Survey in 2008. Changes in the scope of some measures were also made adding new questions in 2008. The analysis of the results in this report is based on a rolled-up summary percentage for all questions in the measure for each respondent group. For each measure, overall results are calculated based on average of rolled-up summary percentages for the related respondent groups. A historical perspective of results is provided, where possible, through comparison of 2008 results with those obtained in 2005, 2006 and 2007. One appendix is included: Sample Sizes and Confidence Intervals in the Satisfaction with Education in Alberta Surveys. (Contains 67 charts.)
