Student Achievement Data Exchange (SADE)
The Student Achievement Data Exchange (SADE) collects course level data for every student for all Distributed Learning schools, Summer schools, and all public schools offering Grades 8 through 12 (including Continuing Education and Alternate Education Centres), as required by the School and Student Data Collection Order (M152/89).
SADE establishes a new approach to data collections in the Ministry. SADE collects a single common core set of data that will be used for multiple purposes, instead of separate collections for every application. SADE has replaced the Summer Learning spreadsheet and the DL Achievement data collection. Beginning in May 2012 SADE will now be used to verify course completion for funding graduated adults under the Education Guarantee.
The information collected through SADE provides schools, districts and the Ministry an additional resource to monitor and support student achievement.
