WINNIPEG — The Manitoba government has shifted how it publishes Grade 12 provincial exam results, making them accessible based on school division.
It’s the first time in 20 years the province has published such results at the division level.
“Sharing these results reflects our government’s commitment to greater transparency and public engagement, and helps us understand where we need to focus our efforts,” said Education and Training Minister Kelvin Goertzen.
“We encourage school divisions to use this information as benchmarks to plan and monitor performance, as well as engage community members on solutions to local issues.”
After previously posting results at the division level, a change was made in 1999 to release them at the provincial level instead. In 2016, the province broke down the data by region, gender and Indigenous identity.
Students in 40S language arts (English and French) and mathematics (essential, applied and pre-calculus) are required to write Grade 12 provincial tests at the end of each semester. The results count toward their final course grade.
