This research project aims to provide a robust account of school performance across Canada by collecting and measuring data on six critical indicators. These indicators are academic achievement, physical and mental health, social-emotional development, creativity and innovation, citizenship and democracy, and school climate. To address this inquiry, survey data will be collected and integrated with existing government data sources to aptly measure the six indicators.
There are two interconnected processes required for this project to succeed: a process of consultation and engagement of the public and stakeholder groups, and the more technical development of measures. Both areas involve key methods for applied research and knowledge mobilization within the social sciences.
