What are Fraser Institute rankings based on?

The Fraser Institute ranks schools using objective, publicly-available data such as average scores on province-wide tests. Rankings are done for Alberta Elementary and High Schools, British Columbia Elementary and Secondary Schools, Ontario Elementary and Secondary Schools, and Quebec Secondary Schools.

How accurate is the Fraser ranking?
