Impacts du PIRS en milieu scolaire

This article examines the impact of the School Achievement Indicators Program (SAIP) on the educational system. SAIP is a Canada-wide program involving the large-scale assessment of student achievement in mathematics, science, reading, and writing. Data were collected using semi-structured interviews conducted with the SAIP's jurisdictional coordinators (n = 20) and from surveys sent to participating school boards across Canada (n = 147). SAIP's impact is described using two dimensions: intrinsic versus extrinsic and positive versus negative.
