The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) is an independent provincial agency funded by the Government of Ontario. EQAO’s mandate is to conduct province-wide tests at key points in every student’s education and report the results to educators, parents and the public. EQAO measures students achievement in reading, writing and mathematics in relation to Ontario Curriculum expectations.
EQAO assesses students throughout their school career:
- Grade 3 assessment of reading, writing and mathematics
- Grade 6 assessment of reading, writing and mathematics
- Grade 9 assessment of mathematics (all students working toward a credit in Grade 9 Academic or Applied Mathematics are required to participate)
- Grade 10 Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT) - successful completion of the test is one of the requirements students must meet to earn an Ontario Secondary School Diploma
Understanding how EQAO assessments are used
EQAO distributes an individual report to each student who writes the tests, and posts school, school board and provincial results on its website. Schools and school boards also create their own reports of EQAO data for distribution to parents and others in their communities. Our school's results are below.
For school-by-school, school board and provincial results, visit the Peel District School Board's website at http://www.peelschools.org/parents/eqao/.
