Developmental Student Outcomes Survey

The purpose of the Developmental Student Outcomes Survey is to ask former upper-level ABE and ESL students to evaluate their educational experiences and to report on their transitions to the labour market and further education. This information is used by post-secondary institutions and government to: 

  • support post-secondary curriculum planning, policy development, and accountability;
  • provide information for program and service evaluations and educational planning; and
  • guide educational choices for former students.
