The Ministry of Education collects data to monitor the performance of Aboriginal students in the BC public school system. The data is published annually in the form of a report entitled “How Are We Doing?” (HAWD) which includes demographic and assessment outcomes at both provincial and school district level.

The Ministry has been collecting the data for over 15 years, and formalized their commitment to providing the HAWD in the Tripartite Education Framework Agreement.
The HAWD Report includes:
- FSA scores in reading, writing, and numeracy
- Graduation rates
- Required examination results
- Information on children in care
- Students in alternate programs
- Students in special needs programs
- Satisfaction survey results
School district level How Are We Doing reports are available on the BC Ministry of Education Reporting Website.
