Grade 9 Math EQAO Assessment - January 16th and 17th 2017

On January 16th and January 17th, Grade 9 students currently enrolled in Semester 1 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 applied or academic mathematics courses in Ontario's publicly funded school system.

  • 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 teachers teach in the classroom every day.  Therefore, your child does not need to prepare in any special way.
  • This is a regular scheduled school day.
  • Students will write in their classrooms with their teachers and would prepare as they normally would for any other assessment.

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.
