Focus Group Sessions for Parents of Grade 3 Students

Focus Group Sessions for Parents of Grade 3 Students

Alberta School Councils’ Association (ASCA) is inviting feedback on the new Grade 3 Student Learning Assessments (SLA) for Alberta Education. 
Alberta Education is seeking parents of Grade 3 students who participated in the fall 2014 pilot administration of the SLA to participate in focus groups. 
The focus groups will be hosted by ASCA in an online platform with Blackboard Collaborate as a webinar format accessible through home computers, laptops or mobile devices. 
The primary purpose of the focus groups is to help inform the future reporting of the Grade 3 Student Learning Assessments. Sessions will include overview, background and administration information of the SLA pilot. A sample proposed parent report will be provided, with a request for feedback from parents about the proposed reports. 
Three dates in January have been scheduled for the one hour focus groups – January 13 (evening), January 15 (daytime) and January 20 (evening). 
A maximum of 25 parent registrants will be accepted for each session. Registration information will be available the first week in January on the ASCA website at .
