Grade 9 Math EQAO Assessment - June 7th and 8th 2017

On Wednesday June 7th and Thursday June 8th Grade 9 students currently enrolled in Semester 2 Academic and Applied Mathematics courses will be taking part in the provincial Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics created by the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO), an independent agency of the Government of Ontario.  This assessment is administered to all students in Grade 9 Academic or Applied Mathematics courses in Ontario's publicly funded school system.

  • All students have been provided with an information letter for you to review. Extra copies are available in the main office.
  • The assessment consists of two (2) test booklets and students are given 60 minutes to complete each booklet.
  • EQAO assessment questions are directly based on the expectations set out in The Ontario Curriculum, which is what educators teach in the classroom every day. 
  • This is a regular-scheduled school day.
  • Students will write in their classrooms with their teachers.
  • Students eligible for accommodations and provisions will also receive an information letter from the school for you to review.

Please note that this test, or part of it, will also be evaluated by your child's math teacher and will count for up to a maximum of 10% of his or her final class mark.

In September 2017, EQAO will send our school a report on your child's achievement on the assessment, and we will send it home at that time.  Your child's results are private and will give you an indication of his or her achievement in relation to Ontario's high provincial standard.

If you have any questions, please contact your child's Mathematics teacher or our Vice Principal - Mr. Lane at (905) 363-0289 ext. 403.
