Measures of Success in the Nunavut Education System: Habkut or Unaaq
AbstractNunavut’s education system and supporting structure has been evolving since the signing of the Land Claim Agreement with the federal government in 1993. Historically, as part of the Northwest Territories, curriculum and evaluation in the Nunavut region was purchased from Alberta Education and this practice continues today. While the development of a local curriculum is ongoing, Alberta Provincial diploma exams are currently the only performance measure for the Nunavut education system and the English Language Arts diploma exam is the only exam used as a graduation requirement. This chapter will contextualize the use of these exams as performance indicators for the Nunavut education system within a view of educational success developed in Nunavut.
